Looking for a .Quebec domain? Now's your chance...
"We have our own culture, and we have our own way of doing things, and we want to also affirm our presence on the web," said Michel Philibert, a spokesman for PointQuebec.
The .quebec address is far from alone when it comes to geographic domains. ICANN has also recently authorized suffixes like .vegas, .nyc, .miami and .paris.
The provincial government has thrown its support behind the .quebec project. Philibert said the province provided a loan to help cover the $185,000 application fee and noted that the plan received support from all political parties in the legislature. He said talks are underway that could eventually see government websites adopt the suffix, a move that could serve as a replacement for the current gouv.qc.ca."
