Universal Acceptance of All Top-Level Domains

Post by Admin on Sun Feb 09, 2014 9:09 am

The Internet is growing. In the 1980s and 1990s, the number of top-level domains was small and the format of domain names was simple. All domains ended with one of a number of common endings like ".com" and ".net", or a two-letter country code like ".de" or ".uk". Times have changed. Since 2001, new types of domains have been introduced:

  • ASCII TLDs of more than 3 letters long (think of ".info" or ".museum"); and
  • since 2010, TLDs comprised of non-Latin characters (such as".中国" and".рф").
The ICANN Board's approval of the new gTLD program in 2011 will allow for hundreds of additional TLDs to be added. This means that the variety of domain names will expand even further.
