Connecting.nyc Inc. is a NYS nonprofit founded in April 2006 to advance the development of the .nyc TLD (top level domain) as a public interest resource. With .nyc's acquisition in 2012 and its initiation in 2014, Connecting's mission morphed to roles that now include:
- Advocating at city hall and elsewhere for the development of the .nyc TLD as a public interest resource.
- The planning, design, and development of the JacksonHeights.nyc domain.
- Advising cities globally through its special consultative status at the United Nations (i.e., Connecting.nyc Inc. is an NGO) on the utility of city-TLDs.
- Advancing the interests of individual Internet users to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) through its status as an At-Large Structure.
To facilitate these roles Connecting.nyc actively participates with ICANN as a At-Large Structure, the New York Internet Society, GISMO, and the Wikimedia-NY Foundation.
