Deloitte & IBM will use the new .UNO extensions to gain access to and highlight their commitment to Spanish speaking brands and business communities.
.UNO’s vision is precise, to create the Spanish Internet. .UNO is the number one choice for Spanish speaking businesses, consumers and individuals around the globe and a highly effective branding choice for those who wish to connect to them. If it’s in Español, you’ll find it at .UNO.
