ICANN Reviewing Domain Name Suffixes

Paralyzed by choices!

The expansion of domain names is under review by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, reports Globe and Mail.

ICANN discussions revolve around expanding the pool of domain name suffixes and permitting non-English letters for the first time.

As it stands, domains are restricted to the 26 English letters, the ten numerals and the hyphen.

There's also the question of ownership when it comes to country domains. For example, should China's ".cn" be offered only to domains in China?
