Dot Amsterdam [May 8, 2012]

Amsterdam city council has applied to buy new top level internet domain name .amsterdam, according to local broadcaster RTV Noord-Holland.

The council made the application to the international domain authority ICANN in Paris. The initial cost of .amsterdam will be €140,000 plus €13,000 a year, the broadcaster says.

The city, which at one point was considering giving every resident their own .amsterdam email address, plans to earn back the money by selling domains to companies.
