SNP MEP Ian Hudghton has today adopted the “.scot” domain name for his website – www.hudghtonmep.scot. Since the 23rd of September it has been possible to use the “.scot” domain and Ian Hudghton MEP is amongst the first people to officially adopt the new domain option.
First Minister Alex Salmond welcomed the introduction of “.scot” when he said, “The time is ripe for the worldwide family of Scots to have their own domain, reflecting an online community defined by a shared commitment to Scottish identity, culture and economic promotion.”
The introduction of “.scot” follows a lengthy campaign led by a cross section of Scottish society based in Scotland, operating in Scotland or part of the Scottish Diaspora community.
Following his adoption of “.scot” Ian Hudghton MEP said,
“The introduction of a “.scot” domain name is to be warmly welcomed. It is an opportunity to clearly identify Scottish websites and can prove to be a unique branding tool for many businesses and those wishing to promote the web content they display on their websites.
“It will now be possible for visitors to my own website – www.hudghtonmep.scot - to instantly identify that I am a Scottish Member of the European Parliament and to browse amongst my activities in Scotland, Brussels and Strasbourg.”
