In June, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the regulatory body that oversees the Internet’s domain name system, approved a plan to expand on generic top-level domain (gTLD) extensions. The plan will soon allow virtually anyone to apply for their own custom gTLD suffixes. In addition to the current limited number (22, at last count) of defined gTLDs (e.g., .com, .org, .net, .info, .edu, .gov, etc.), the new plan will reorganize the Internet to allow for there to be “.anything.” The gTLDs can be as long as 63 characters and can consist of almost any word in any language.
