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.

A global internet body has voted to allow the creation of new website domain suffixes, the biggest change for the online world in years.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann) plans to dramatically increase the number of domain endings from the current 22.

Ten years down the line, will dot com be perceived as the Real Suffix for Real Websites, or will it be used only by boring old codgers and/or sorry cheapskates?

Hey! Let me give you my 1-800 number, it's "866-###-####"...

Listen to the radio and you'll hear an ad -- "Visit us at "www.example.net" --- 90% of the people will go home and type in www.example.com....
