New.net Bypasses ICANN on TLDs
A new registration site, New.net, has directly bypassed the popular Internet regulation board ICANN in offering TLDs for sale. The PCWorld article reports that New.com, in addition to the seven recently approved top level domains, 13 others are up for sale at $25 a shot. The new domains include .kids, .travel, and .xxx. Arguments over ownership of sites will be judged in the same manner as ICANN by New.net. The company is working with UltraDNS to make access to the domains more efficient, as they already work within existing DNS structure. For more information visit www.new.net.
