Starting Dot is a new registry managing a portfolio of community top-level domains.

Founded in October 2011 in Paris, Starting Dot is developing a portfolio of 3 new Top Level Domain names (TLDs) dedicated to major industries: .ARCHI (architecture), .BIO and .SKI. Starting Dot's strategy is to focus on TLDs dedicated to SME categories for which a direct correlation between their trade and their domain name is of the utmost importance.
