New domains from 2009
THE ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is about to vote on new domain names for the WWW.
Apart from the .com, .net or .org, the 1.3 billion web users will be able from early 2009 to acquire generic addresses by lodging common words such as .love, .hate or .city or proper names,” ICANN president Paul Twomey told French newspaper Les Echos.
Internet users should soon be able to use new domain names such as .love, .paris or .bank if one of the world wide web’s biggest shakeups is approved this week as expected by the web regulator ICANN.
