ICANN, the big boss of internet naming, has opened up the registration process for its new range of generic domain addresses. From next year, new top-level domains like .web, .google and .whateverelse will be available.
The 'sunrise' period is now over. You can officially buy dot-XXX domains from your favourite domain registrar, as of today. Whatever your imagination can conjure up, and no I don't want to know thanks, can be registered as long as no-one's shot first.
