.boston was delegated on November 29, 2016, and entered into GA on October 10, 2017.
The following is excerpted fromt eh applicant's response to question #18:
"The .BOSTON TLD aims to become a new on line identity for the city of Boston, its inhabitants, companies, organizations and institutions, managed and supervised by The Boston Globe.
Given the fact that The Boston Globe (owned by Globe Newspaper Company, Inc.) has always been a major supporter of any activities being organized by or within the city of Boston, and provides up-to-date information to Bostonians and the world under its boston.com Web site, the city of Boston has provided a letter of support to TBG for the .BOSTON initiative. TBG?s Web sites currently receive more than 7 million unique visitors per year, and have been in operation since 1995.
These may include people who will soon be moving to Boston, open a business in the City, etc. Giving the fact that innovation undisputedly forms part of the DNA of Boston, TBG and the City of Boston opted not to have any restrictions as regards the eligibility for a domain name registration, hence potentially stifling future uses of the .BOSTON TLD."<ref>[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/158 Application Download, gTLDresult.ICANN.org] Retrieved 26 Feb 2013</ref>
