ICANN to allow .anytld to be used on the web

In a major shakeup for the Internet, the global Internet governing body ICANN has voted to allow any word or name to be used as an Internet suffix.

Currently the number of suffixes, commonly known as TLDs (Top Level Domain) sits at 22 and includes .co. country variations that bring the total up to 250, and other common ones for organisations and governments. This new change would allow domain names with any ending to be registered and approved.

It's a shame it costs $150,000+ just to petition for a custom suffix. You have to have money to begin with.
