ICANN Votes Monday to Grant Trademark Domain Suffixes

The International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is meeting in Singapore on Monday to vote on a new naming system for the top level domains. Companies like Microsoft, Apple Google, Facebook, Ford or any of the upper tier corporations will now be able to use their corporate name over the standard .com if the measure passes.

It will cost a company $185,000 just to apply and there are a number of criteria that must be met before ICANN will give the nod for a firm to own the domain name of its choice.
