Scottish Government switches to a .Scot domain

Herald Scotland published an article that the Scottish government is switching to a .Scot domain with the older scotland.gov.uk continuing to function. It makes sense not to do away with the old address which I would imagine will eventually become a redirect.

The move, signalled last year, marks a shift away from standard UK government web addresses which end ‘.gov.uk’.

More than 8000 addresses have been sold to individuals and organisations since they became available last September.
