ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) has just announced the advent of generic top-level domains (gLTDs).
Most of you just said “Say whah????”
Basically, it means that if Envoi Design had enough money, we could purchase the domain extension “.design” and our permanent website address could be “envoi.design” – that’s it. Not “envoidesign.com,” just “envoi.design” and you’re at our web site. Pretty cool, except that it could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars!
