ABOUT US – DOTBERLIN GMBH & CO. KG
We administer the domain ending .berlin. As the instigator of the first top-level domain for a city worldwide, we started the global trend for local domain endings which has been followed by over 40 other cities such as New York, London and Tokyo and by numerous regions.

We also carried out the application process for Vienna’s city top-level domain .wien at ICANN, and we were also responsible for the concept of the new endings .bayern (for Bavaria), .koeln (for Cologne) and .nrw (for North Rhine Westphalia.
