ICANN Looks to Expand Top Level Domains

ICANN, the non-profit group that oversees web addresses, is expected to open up the web universe by creating an unlimited number of top level domain suffixes.  Companies, cities and even individuals willing to shell out the proposed $100-500K can have their own .Com, for instance URLs that end in .Apple or .SanFrancisco. The agency hopes the move will offer new ways for companies to present themselves on the net. The new domains could be live in 2009.  Get your check books ready.
