Today, New York City’s long-awaited domain suffix, .nyc, officially goes on sale. The “web address for New Yorkers,” which has been in the works for a few years but needed approval from ICANN, the organization that controls domain names, is now live. And assuming you or your business can prove that you’re physically located within the five boroughs, you can buy your very own piece of city-themed digital real estate.

But you’d better hurry. A spokesman for GoDaddy said that the following domains have already been registered:
