This article will explain what a .Scot domain name is, as well as explaining who can register one.
.Scot domain names will provide a similar role to domain names such as .London and .Wales by enabling people, companies and organisations to identify themselves as Scottish, or with Scotland.
.Scot domains can be used by people and groups who contribute to Scottish society, culture, business sector and academia.
As a result all registrations of .Scot domain names are restricted to bonafide members of the Scottish community. This means that the registered domain names must be:
- Generally accepted as legitimate
- Beneficial to the cause and the values of the worldwide Scottish community
- Proportionate to the role and importance of the registered domain name
- In good faith at the time of registration and thereafter
Please note: Registrants are required to state their intended use of the registered domain name. A false statement of intended use can be an indication of bad faith, which may result in the suspension of the domain name by the registry.
