London & Partners, the promotional agency for London, said and internet body ICANN has signed a contract this week giving the news system the formal go-ahead.
The agreement means London-based businesses, organisations and individuals will be able to apply first for new web addresses ending in .london from spring 2014, allowing them to maximise their internet presence and identify themselves online with one of the best cities on earth.
