Get a place of your own in the capital for just £29.99…
This morning’s newspapers are full of news about the soaring price of property in London. There’s barely a corner of the capital that’s not ranked as prime location.
But today, a more affordable address comes onto the market in the big smoke. From today, you’ll be able to pre-order for a .london website. This range of virtual real estate has been created so that everyone from businesses and bloggers to job-seekers can shout about their connections to the capital city.
And why wouldn’t you want to show off about the fact that you’re local to London? England’s capital is home to one of the best workforces in the world. The 4 million people who work in the capital speak 230 languages between them, half a million are cutting-edge tech specialists, and 400,000 are creatives. What’s more, the city plays host to more company headquarters than any other in Europe.
In particular, London is becoming the nucleus of the world’s technology and media industry. One in 10 jobs in the capital are part of this industry, which contributes a massive eight percent to the GDP of the entire country.
If you’re a blogger, meanwhile, a .london web address will show to your readers that you’re in one of the most hooked-up cities in the world. London features 173 museums, 857 art galleries and almost 19,000 historical sites. It shows more than 32,000 theatre shows a year and 17,000 music performances – making it the third best city in the world to catch a gig or a concert. The city is also the heartland of pop-up culture, where drama, art and foodie events take place almost spontaneously to give Londoners one-off experiences.
UK2 are selling .london web addresses for one of the best prices on the Internet. Pre-orders yours now for just £29.99. Then, when the web address goes on general release, in September, UK2 will be at the front of the queue to try and get it for you. If, for some reason, we can’t get it for you, we’ll refund you.
