TECHCOMM AND IP CLIENT ALERT: Domain Name Skies to Open Up with New gTLDs

    View Author 27 June 2011
    On June 20, 2011, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approved a plan to allow new Internet domains, or generic top-level domains (gTLDs), to be created. Currently, there are only 22 approved gTLDs, including the familiar .com, .org and .net, as well as the “country code” TLD domain names, such as .us or .eu. ICANN’s plan will allow for hundreds of new gTLDs, such as .pattonboggs.
