    Paraguay, named after the river that flows centrally through it, is one of just two landlocked countries in the Americas. What else do you know about it?

.scot - new domain for Scots worldwide

Postby Kay » Wed 13 Aug 2014 19:33 GMT

I saw a story in the Smellygraph about the new domain so, as a Scot, I thought I'd have a look. I can't say I'm particularly excited by it. IMO it'll never rival .com and co.uk for Scots on the Net.

Anyway, I clicked through to dotscot.net - the body responsible for administering this. What a shambles. So many typos and missing pieces of information. I also wasn't impressed by their list of approved registrars. Some of them are notorious newbie traps. Others I'd never even heard of. And there were very few mainstream registrars on their list.

Never say "never", it's possible I may get one of more in the future but I think that's unlikely.

Would any of you be interested in such a thing?
