Wow, guys. This is HUGE and will usher in some fun new opportunities to get very creative – thought with what I expect to be an extremely costly entry barrier to begin – with their digital presence.
Here’s a blurb from the CNN article:
In past years, there have been requests for new top level domains such as .kids, .shop, .nyc and — for porn sites — .xxx.
The group said “strong efforts were made to address the concerns of all interested parties, and to ensure that the security, stability and resiliency of the Internet are not compromised.”
“Today’s decision will usher in a new Internet age,” said Peter Dengate Thrush, chairman of ICANN’s board of directors. “We have provided a platform for the next generation of creativity and inspiration.”
The group said it will begin to accept applications for new domain endings in January 2012.
What domain will you buy first?
