Here's some huge freakin' news: According a source in France, the ICANN, the organization that regulates the internet, has voted to expand the number of top-level domains available on the web from around 250 to a nearly infinite amount. That means that, rather than hosting photos of your dog at, say, "www.ILoveMySchnauser.com" you will be able to buy "www.Schnauser.love" or "www.Love.my.Shnauser" or any other permutation you can think of.
"We think this is a great opportunity for the sector, we are very enthusiastic," the chief executive of ICANN, Paul Twomey, told AFP before the vote.
Apparently, the details will be worked out over the next three or four months, with the change expected to take effect in the second quarter of 2009.
