New Poker Top Level Domain to be Launched
A Top Level Domain (TLD) is the set of letters that come after the dot in a web address. For example, in ‘www.google.com’ , ‘.COM‘ is the TLD
Up until now, there has been very few TLD options you could choose from when buying a domain name. There is the omnipresent ‘.COM’,. Also there is ‘.NET’ , ‘.INFO’ and few others. Additionally you can find country TLD’s like ‘.DE’ , for Germany.
Things are about to change , in a BIG way
ICANN , (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) , the official governing body of the world wide web, is moving forward with plans to introduce new TTLD’s to the internet on a wide scale. ICANN expects to introduce hundreds of new TLD’s over the next couple of years. The internet will never be the same. Soon, you will see all types of TLD’s going live online. There will be www.diapers.BABY, www.jeans.SHOP. It is a sure bet you will see www.TexasHoldem.POKER .
