Domain industry VIPs, politicians, civil servants and around a hundred “Dot Paris Pioneers” all celebrated the new Dot Paris domain at an exclusive launch event held at the landmark Eiffel Tower last night.

Milathan was there as the first 100 Dot Paris domain names went live. Names awarded to companies like 2kids1bag, chosen by the city of Paris for their innovative nature to serve as ambassadors for the new TLD.

The full Dot Paris launch will begin in September with a sunrise priority registration period for trademark holders. General availability is currently expected in December 2014.
