More than 1,500 .Scot domain names were registered by members of the public within 60 seconds of the new gTLD launch and over 4,000 were registered in the first hour of the domain becoming available according to a report in thecourier.co.uk.
Jesus.scot and Oor Wullie.scot, Braveheart.scot, the45percent.scot, Cocacola.scot and Facebook.scot.
One customer registered 20 different .scot domains.
Not-for-profit company Dot Scot Registry was created to apply for and operate the .scot domain.
The price depends on the registrar selling but buyers can expect to pay around £20 to £25 for a one-year registration.
Graham Haddock, chief commissioner for Scouts Scotland, said: “Online is where many people – members and potential members – get their information about Scouts and even though we are a successful global youth organisation, Scouting exists in local communities right across Scotland.
“As such, it made complete sense for the Scouts in Scotland to have a strong presence and identity via www.scouts.scot. It also plays to remind people that the Scout Association is an ever-changing organisation as we always seek to be relevant and attractive to young people.”
Director of Dot Scot Registry Gavin McCutcheon said: “It is entirely right that Scotland should have its own distinctive and recognisable internet domain, in particular one that will resonate internationally, helping to promote Scottish business and culture throughout the world.
“I am confident that the .scot domain name will prove to be a real asset to the people of Scotland and to the worldwide family of Scots.”
Finance Secretary John Swinney said: “With .scot domains now generally available, people at home and abroad have a new opportunity to express their Scottish identity or affinity online.
“I also look forward to www.gov.scot being adopted in the coming months as the primary web address for the Scottish Government.”
