Dot-com Domain Names Now Have a Lot of Company

Hosted by

For Internet users, the domain names that come after the dot are changing big time. Instead of just .com, .net .org and a few others there will soon be hundreds and almost 2000 are in the pipeline. Generic top-level Internet domain names(gTLD) are issued by registries, including Donuts Inc. Today, Donuts went live with seven new domains: .bike, .clothing. guru, .holdings, plumbing, .singles and .ventures. The Internet may never be the same, as we hear from Sarah Needleman, who reports about small business for the Wall Street Journal.
