Alabama’s Berlin gets a new domain name

Berlin is more than just a city.  The German capital represents the aspirations and achievements of the German folks. However, did you know that there is another Berlin in the US?

Berlin is also a town in the state of Alabama. The town is a part of Cullman county.

The municipality of the town adopted a new domain name. The town had been until now using a .org domain name, i.e, The county would now function on the new .gov domain,

This is another government entity opting for a more secure .gov domain name. However, the reason behind the move is not just the security concern. There are economic factors as well.

Few months ago the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) announced the wavering of .gov registration fees for the municipalities. Thus, opting for a .gov domain name has been economically viable and a more prominent option.

The security provided by the .gov domain is well known. However, the price wavering would give the extension the much needed boost.

We keenly look for the new opters of .gov domain names. You can check them here.

    In the domain market, .berlin domains are also available. Anyone can register .BERLIN domain names on a first-come, first-served basis. As a geographic TLD, .berlin functions as an identifiable, unifying namespace for the millions of people who live in, work in, travel to or have business connections with Berlin. .berlin extension is also great for artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, travel agents, museums, and community groups. .
