Today there’re only a few generic top-level domains (gTLDs): .com, .net, .org, .biz, and .info, etc. But ICANN, the organization in charge of domain names, is planning to open the door to potentially hundreds or more generic domain extensions.
Under new ICANN rules, any public or private organization that meets eligibility requirements can apply for new Internet extensions.
There is no way of knowing the exact number of applications ICANN will receive nor how many new TLDs will be approved.
That, of course, could reduce the importance of the .com domain.
The new Internet’s revolution will start soon: new top-level domains such as .web .tokyo .nyc .xxx .shop .med .eco .green .hotel .sport .music .film .radio .site are coming.
Registering a .film domain for your site sends the unmistakable signal that your company provides films. And companies like HP, Ford, may offer their customers with .hp .ford domains.
