Icann increases web domain suffixes...

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.

Internet address names will be able to end with almost any word, and be in any language.

Icann will begin taking applications for the new domain names next year.

"Icann has opened the Internet's addressing system to the limitless possibilities of the human imagination," said Rod Beckstrom, president and chief executive officer for Icann.

"No one can predict where this historic decision will take us."

A breaking story...more news to emerge on this subject.

Seems like we have more than enough as it is. I'd say the only reason for doing this is so they can make more money.
