    .NYC domains are 2 years old and celebrate by releasing about 3,800 .nyc “premium domain names” today.

    Starting on Monday, October 10 at 3:00pm EDT, these .nyc premium domain names will be offered to the public at a premium price through participating domain retailers.

    This is the list of the 4,300 domains that are designated as “Premium Domains”: Check them out here. The remaining 500 domains will be auctioned or sold in the aftermarket.

    The 3,800 released premium domains will be available through a tiered pricing ranging from $250 to $5,000. All domains can be then renewed at standard pricing.

    These web addresses were categorized as “premium” by the New York City and Neustar, the .nyc contractor and backend provider, for a variety of reasons, including their broad appeal, category-defining keywords, and brevity. Like all .nyc domain names, premium domain names are exclusively available to the City’s residents, organizations, and businesses.

    .NYC is cool, but unfortunately you have to be a resident of New York City to register one of the domans. Nonetheless, I think that rule is only fair as they should have the first shot at getting such domains. Nonetheless, I bet some people cheat the system and don't really live in the Big Apple.
