Internet regulators ok domain name expansion

By on June 20th, 2011

The “dot-com” days are set to become a thing of the past after internet regulators voted to expand domain names. This expansion allows most any company the opportunity to claim their own domain name if the price is right. Domain names like dot-apple, dot-law, and dot-sony are some of the examples of companies, organizations, and even indviduals able to take advantage of this expansion.
