Internet Shake up

ICANN Announces its support for new TLD domain extensions!

On Friday, ICANN, the net’s regulator, voted unanimously to relax the strict rules on so-called “top-level” domain names, such as .com or .uk. The decision means that companies could turn brands into web addresses, while individuals could use their names such as .smith or .namesco.

“We are opening up a new world and I think this cannot be underestimated,” said Roberto Gaetano, a member of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

As one of the UK’s largest registrars for Domain Names, Namesco have welcomed the news!

“Namesco has always been at the very forefront of new domain name extensions. We are all waiting to hear the next steps from ICANN, but nevertheless, despite being early days we’re all very excited about what this means for the internet community as well as for Namesco and its customers.” Jason Smith, Director (Namesco Ltd).
