Doing Away With Dot-Coms?

We’ve become creatures of such strong digital habits that we reflexively type .com or .net as suffixes for web addresses. For the record, there’re presently 22 of them, though we may not be familiar with all of them. But get ready to adjust to and adapt. More are on their way.

The agency that regulates the digital real estate, that is, the Internet’s zoning board, plans to introduce a new batch of generic top-level domain, (gTLD), which will end in brand names such as .hitachi, .motorola, etc.

Quirky? They may go live as early as 2013. But there’s little reason to be worried. The .com won’t disappear overnight.
