dotBERLIN, founded in 2005, is a bottom-up community-based organization which with the aim to establish and operate the .berlin top-level domain as name space and identity for all Berliners. Our focus is to develop .berlin responsible and sustainably within a multi-stakeholder framework including government, private sector and civil society. Our vision is that the new local .berlin domain names are concise and create an identity for citizens, companies and institutions. Those providing and looking for information, goods and services can thus intuitively come together. The .berlin domain names will strengthen the feeling of community amongst Berliners, improve communication and make interaction easier, thus providing a stimulus for innovation and development. Both for Berliners and for non-Berliners, the places called Berlin become more attractive as a place to visit, as a commercial location and as a place to live.
