ICANN to Allow .anytld to be Used on the Web

Monday, June 20th, 2011

Given the constantly growing number of domains out there, I guess this was inevitable …

In a major shakeup for the Internet, the global Internet governing body ICANN has voted to allow any word or name to be used as an Internet suffix.

Currently the number of suffixes, commonly known as TLDs (Top Level Domain) sits at 22 and includes ‘.co.’ country variations that bring the total up to 250, and other common ones for organisations and governments. This new change would allow domain names with any ending to be registered and approved.
