Paris, known to most as the ‘City of Love’ is best known for its many museums, world famous restaurants and of course the iconic Eiffel Tower.
While Paris has a look which to the outsider shows a city rooted in history, the city is well and truly flying into the digital age. As a leader in the burgeoning European startup community, Paris continues to support digital innovation with its investment in the .paris city TLD. Showing the level of dedication to this initiative, the City of Paris have converted their primary digital tourism property around the iconic Eiffel Tower to be located at toureiffel.paris, a domain name which in no uncertain terms indicates their support for .paris.
In addition, the residents and businesses of Paris have certainly taken notice with a very high number of registrations in .paris showing the famous Parisian flair for innovation.
