So apparently ICANN has decided to start allowing people to purchase new Top Level Domains. Existing ones are things like .com, .net, .info, .biz, and so forth. They are going to charge a hefty $100,000 for the privilege however. Personally I think it’s a terrible idea, and it’s just a plot to make some quick money on their part. Anyway, my buddy guesses there will be 950 vanity TLDs registered in the first auction (where a vanity TLD being one that refers to a company, person, organization) I say that’s way too high, I’d be surprised if there were over a hundred.
