Internet braces for '.Vegas' and other not-coms The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers will meet Monday in Singapore (Sunday evening in the U.S.) to vote on its expansion plan for domain names. If ICANN approves the plan as expected, new domains could start appearing late next year... Internet braces for new addresses beyond '.com,' including '.bank,' '.eco' and '.Canon.'

What will the world say 2-3 years into this process? "Yeah, so I see . . you got a .Vegas domain. So, . . what else you got?"

pssst... wanna buy some cheap .BIZ, .INFO, and .NAME names? IMO -- the only one worth pursuing is ".X X X" or ".S E X" and requiring ALL pron to use it. Just what we need -- small business owners and newbies scared into ALSO registering the myLocalBusinessExample.overshoe name along with the (preferred) .COM Anything for a buck I guess.
