Internet Address Expansion Set Despite ".Worries."

The floodgates are now open, let's see where all this new domain name stuff takes us.

Bidding will begin this week for words and brand names such as ".sport," ''.NYC" and ".bank" to join ".com" as online monikers. Up to 1,000 domain name suffixes آ— the ".com" in an Internet address آ— could be added each year in the most sweeping change to the domain name system since its creation in the 1980s. To some, the system will lead to ".cash." To others, it will mean ".confusion."
