ICANN approves new suffixes

    icann  On 20/06/2011, ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) approved the measure after which anyone can register domains with custom suffixes. Until now there were only certain suffixes that could be used but from the first decade of 2012 we’ll be able to register domains with any suffixes.
       Known as gTLDs (generic top-level domains), they will be priced around $ 185,000 and will go through several stages of reviews before being approved, mainly con trolled for copyrights.
       The news that will open new unexplored avenues  on the Internet has been posted on the corporation website and belongs to the President and Chief Executive Officer of ICANN, Rod Beckstrom:

“ICANN has opened the Internet’s naming system to unleash the global human imagination. Today’s decision respects the rights of groups to create new Top Level Domains in any language or script. We hope this allows the domain name system to better serve all of mankind.”
