New names to come to the right of the dot
January 23, 2013By Shai Ben-Yaacov
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the governing body for internet naming conventions, is in the process of weighing applications for new generic top level domains.
What's a generic top level domain? It's more commonly known as the text to the right of the dot in a URL, like .com, .net, and .org.
Now, there could be a whole host of new GTLDs like .shop, .search, or .book.
NewsWorks Tonight Host Dave Heller spoke with Jason Schaeffer, an intellectual property attorney with ESQwire.com, about the change to come.
