'''.vegas''' is a proposed new [[GeoTLD|geographical TLD]] to [[ICANN]]'s [[New gTLD Program|new gTLD expansion program]] by [[Dot Vegas Inc.]] to become its registry operator. The company started preparing its application for the .vegas TLD since 2007. Its application with ICANN is supported by the Las Vegas City Council, the City of North Las Vegas,  Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, the Nevada Development Authority, and the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce. <ref>[http://www.dotvegas.com/blog/las-vegas-city-council-selects-dot-vegas-inc-%E2%80%99s-application-of-vegas-as-top-level-domain/ LAS VEGAS CITY COUNCIL SELECTS DOT VEGAS, INC.’S APPLICATION OF .VEGAS AS TOP-LEVEL DOMAIN]</ref>

The Las Vegas City Government and Dot Vegas Inc. signed a revenue-sharing agreement. The city will receive $0.75 for every .vegas domain name registered or 10 percent of the company's gross annual revenue per year if ICANN approves its application. [[James Trevino]], CEO & President of Dot Vegas Inc. expects 300,000 to 500,000 domain names will be registered during the first year of operation of the .vegas TLD. <ref>[http://domainnamewire.com/2010/01/20/how-many-registration-can-vegas-expect/ How Many Registrations Can .Vegas Expect?]</ref>

[[Brian Greenspun.]], Chairman & CEO  Greenspun Corp. said that his company can offer better revenue-sharing agreement. He said, ''"The city could do better than that at $1 per registrant."'' <ref>
