Internet Body to add new Domain Suffixes

ICANN, the group that oversees the Internet's traffic system, has announced that it will approve a number of new address suffixes in the next year. The new domains will follow the models of restricted domains such as ".museum" (limited to museums) and ".edu" (limited to U.S. colleges and universities) rather than the broader ".com" and ".org", since the new domains will be limited to specific fields of expertise, such as health care. Since ICANN was created in 1998, it has been under pressure to widen the domain name system to add other domains such as ".web" and ".golf". In 2000, ICANN approved 7 new domains: ".museum", ".aero", ".pro", ".coop", ".biz" and ".info".
