Web regulators Thursday voted to allow the creation of thousands of new domain names, from .paris to .Pepsi, in one of the biggest shake-ups in Internet history.

 

The Board of ICANN today approved a recommendation that could see a whole range of new names introduced to the Internet's addressing system.

Having a whole host of new suffixes ain't gonna be worth squat until the whole network switches to IPv6 - the present block just won't cope

 

Matk you I doubt if it will make a scrap of difference - they'll all just use '.com' anyway.

 

The original intention was that .com, .gov, etc were for international groups - the US was suppsoed to use .co.us, .gov.us and so on - but after all Al Gore did invent it :lol: (move over Sir Tim)

And I have IPv6 disabled to speed up my dialup connection in about:config and also some /etc file. LOL!
