On 29 April 2014, the domain name has gone on sale for the first time, Metro Bank and Fortnum and Mason have already secured the addresses, with some pages already live. London and Partners, which promotes the city, said that .london would carry a premium because of its exclusivity, It is expected to cost up to £50 annually for each domain name.[2]
