New top level domains open new possibilities for online businesses
8 Jul 2010
Generic top level domains (gTLDs) are the last part of a domain name, such as ".com" or ".net". There are currently 21 gTLDs in use around the world.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is developing a new process to allow any organisation to introduce its own gTLD.
This could eventually result in domain names ending with words like '.movie', brand names and trade marks like '.qantas', or even city names like '.canberra'.
