The report noted: "ICANN, the world body that oversees the web’s naming conventions, gave London the go-ahead this week to use its own unique domain name from 2014, along with New York, Berlin, Vienna and Brussels." London’s Mayor Boris Johnson said using the ".london" suffix would "enable organizations to associate themselves more closely with London’s global brand."
