Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
While names like .health, .car, .web and .nyc are already on the roster, the government has expressed disapproval about more controversial names. The .#*$! domain, for instance, was initially approved by ICANN but the Bush administration blocked its use seven years ago and the government has never given it official approval.
The dotGAY Initiative and the .GAY Alliance have already stated they will apply for the .gay TLD despite the whopping $185,000 application fee. But there have been concerns that if world governments are given absolute veto power of TLDs, names like .gay, .jihad and .humanrights will never see the light of day.
