Paris and Vienna are the two cities that welcome the largest number of international conferences annually.
It's possible to send requests to ICANN, which manages domain names worldwide, since this Thursday
Say goodbye to traditional ".com", ".gov" or ".fr"! ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), a Californian institution that manages domain names worldwide, decided last June to allow the use of whole words as suffixes. Since this Thursday, requests may be sent.
To give a simple example, "20minutes.fr" would be able to choose another domain name like "20.minutes", "20minutes.info", "20minutes.france." Microsoft or Mozilla may have their sites ".microsoft" or ".mozilla". In short, the opportunities will soon be endless as far as extensions on the Internet are concerned.
But for many companies, it is not necessarily good news. Some worry about this liberalization of domain names announced and already engage lawyers to defend their brand on the Internet.
