Interesting rationale for a city changing its domain name

This month, the Town of West Hartford changed its domain name from westhartford.org to westhartfordct.gov. The .gov domain offers a higher level of scrutiny that only federal, state and local governments are allowed to use. Joining the .gov community verifies that our internet address is the official Town of West Hartford, CT and that we have been vetted by the General Services Administration (GSA), an independent agency of the United States government. All visitors to the old website address will automatically be redirected to the new website address. Town employee email addresses will also change to the new domain name and will end with westhartfordct.gov. Messages will also be automatically forwarded to the new one.
