So the The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers is accepting requests for words that can replace the com, org, or what-have-you that goes after the “.” in a url. This could make internet history…but the ICANN is only accepting the requests from January 12th to April 12th. So it seems that they will only add the requested words to the current list containing only 22 words.
I think this will only add to confusion. Now we have to remember one extra word in an address. I just don’t see a benefit and I doubt there will be any huge turnaround in the urls. Smart businesses will stick to the traditional endings.
