The Future of “.com”

The Future of “.com”

Following ICANN’s 46th meeting in Beijing, the President of ICANN told the Wall Street Journal that the private, U.S.-based Internet administrator will roll out Chinese character options for top-level domains (TLDs) later this year. In addition to allowing companies to apply for their own TLDs (think www.shop.nike without that pesky .com getting in the way), ICANN is working to introduce new address endings in additional languages, such as Arabic, Russian, and Japanese.
