City web addresses could soon be getting a new home.

The agency in charge of online addresses has given preliminary approval of a .nyc domain.

That means that in addition to domains like .com and .org, website owners can choose to end their addresses in .nyc.

New York is one of several cities, including London, Paris and Istanbul, that got approval for a special domain.

City officials say businesses, organizations and people with a city address should be able to register for the new addresses late this year.
