.BAR DOMAIN NAME CELEBRATES THE CITY OF BAR, MONTENEGRO, WITH $100,000 ACADEMIC DONATION FOR A LOCAL SCHOOL
With the Launch of the New .BAR domain for Bars and Nightclubs, Domain Company Punto 2012 Commits to an Annual $10,000 Donation to the Meksiko School in Bar, Montenegro until 2024
MEXICO CITY (June 26, 2014)—In celebration of the launch of new generic top level domain (gTLD) “.BAR,” civic leaders from the nations of Montenegro and Mexico celebrated at an event in the coastal city, .Bar, Montenegro last week, as Punto 2012 presented the first of an annual $10,000 donation to the Meksiko school that will net $100,000 by 2024.
Although the .BAR domain, released also with the .REST domain for restaurants, was released specifically for bars and nightclubs, it will also be valuable to businesses, organizations and individuals in the Bar municipality, as they share the same name. Punto 2012 and Bar worked together to create a system enabling the citizens of the city to conveniently register domains.
“I hope the cooperation between the municipality of Bar and Punto 2012 will serve as a good example to other successful companies to take part in the improvement and creation of even better conditions for educating our young people,” said head administrator of the municipality of Bar, Zoran Radonjic.
“We are truly thrilled and humbled to have the opportunity to become part of the fabric of the future of the Meksiko students,” said Aaron Grego, CEO Punto 2012. “It is our hope that this donation will help their academic futures and, as Bar is one of the first cities in the world to get its own Internet domain, we also hope that .BAR will become a part of everyday life for the citizens of Bar”
“It is exactly this donation that shows that the friendship between Mexico and Montenegro is still lasting, despite the time and kilometers that stand between us,” said school headmaster Elda Dzankovic-Ibrisimovic. “The resources the school will be receiving over the next ten years will enable us to make planned investments into educational aids necessary for meeting the modern educational requirements. This event is also an invitation to all socially responsible individuals and organizations investing in our country to follow the example of Punto 2012 because by investing in education, we invest in ourselves and our future.”
.BAR and .REST will be made available to the general public on July 14, 2014 on all major registrars. For more information go to www.register.bar www.register.rest
