According to a press release from Godaddy over 15% of .LONDON domains that were registered through GoDaddy came from outside of the UK.
5.9% of all .London domains registered by Godaddy were registered by people in the United States and 1.9 percent were registered by people or businesses in Germany.
Stefano Maruzzi, VP of GoDaddy EMEA, says: “These figures show that London is one of the most attractive cities to businesses worldwide. Since the general availability launch on Tuesday Ninth September, the number of queries for .LONDON on our website has quadrupled, surpassing search volume for the entire month of August.”
