.london is a top-level domain (TLD) for London, England. It was approved by ICANN as a city-level TLD on 7 June 2013.[1] On 29 April 2014, the domain name went on sale for the first time.[2] Metro Bank and Fortnum and Mason have secured 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 costs from £6.99 annually for each domain name.[3]
