IT consultancy firm Top Level Domain Holdings (LON:TLDH) today announced a deal in Germany to help set up the ‘.bayern’ generic top level domain.

Bayern Connect GmbH, which is majority owned by TLDH, has been awarded the contract by the Bavarian State Government. 

Subsequently the group’s domain registry consultancy Minds+Machines will provide back-end services for the proposed new domain. 

The company’s will receive a share of the revenues generated by the new domain.

"We view .bayern as a very significant win for Bayern Connect and for TLDH,” said chief executive Antony Van Couvering.

He added: “Germany has 82 million inhabitants, 62 million internet users and 15 million domain names registered under .de. By comparison, Bavaria has 12.5 million inhabitants.
