Conway, UCA "buzzing" about .buzz

A new generation of internet domains is based right here in Arkansas.

Tuesday, .buzz launched, and UCA students are being credited with making it happen.
.buzz is a TLD or Top Level Domain, which is the letters to the far right of a domain name like .com or .org.
What looked like a typical college party on the lawn of the University of Central Arkansas' College of Business Tuesday was actually a launch party for .buzz.
".buzz, I like to explain it, the easiest way is it's the young hip, fun cousin of .com," explained Bill Doshier, president of the dotStrategy company in Conway. To read more, click this link: (http://www.katv.com/story/25256389/conway-uca-buzzing-about-buzz#.U06ffwRM0F4.facebook)
