Minds + Machines Chosen for Dot MIAMI

The Directors of Top Level Domain Holdings Limited (AIM:TLDH.L), a publicly traded company focused exclusively on acquiring and operating new generic top-level domains ("TLDs"), announced today that Minds + Machines has been chosen by the City of Miami to apply for the .MIAMI top-level domain.

On 7 March 2012, the Commissioners of the City of Miami voted 4-0 to accept the proposal from Minds + Machines and requested Minds + Machines to begin work on the application for .MIAMI immediately. The Minds + Machines' proposal was chosen following a competitive bid process. Minds + Machines is wholly-owned by TLDH.

Miami is a major tourist destination attracting over 38 million visitors annually who collectively spend on average US$17.1 billion each year. Miami is also a major business hub acting as a gateway between Latin America and the United States. Both Spanish and English are recognized languages in the city and the greater Miami area is the largest urban centre in the southeastern U.S. with a population of 5.5 million.

Antony Van Couvering, CEO of TLDH, commented: "We are delighted to have secured the support of the City of Miami for .MIAMI. Miami is a key hub, a vibrant multi-cultural city recognized as a major fashion, retail, arts and commercial centre. Having its own top-level domain will enhance the standing of Miami globally and further enhance the City's prominence in the field of technology and with the ever increasing importance of the Internet. We are well aware of the serious responsibilities given to us by the Commissioners, and we look forward to providing a modern, responsive and reliable .MIAMI registry."

Top Level Domain Holdings has now announced that it has secured registry service contracts with clients for geographic and generic gTLDs in the US, Germany, India, Africa (.zulu), and New Zealand (.kiwi).
