New Domain Names Coming

And what will they be?  I haven’t the faintest idea.  ICANN, the organization in charge of creating and maintaining top level domain names like edu and com, has changed the rules.  In June, they voted to accept a new proposal that would allow anyone to create their own top level domain name.  So, instead of having just 21, we will have many.

Although not definite, it is assumed that these domain names will not be cheap; maybe tens of thousands of dollars each.  We should start seeing them in 2009.
