PostSubject: Four New Top-Level Domains Announced   Wed Oct 23, 2013 3:45 pm

Damn!  I hate seeing gibberish, but I understand that others hate seeing our Latin characters too.

Four new generic top-level domains - the letters that appear at the end of web addresses, such as .com - have been announced.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann) is expected to roll out the new names within weeks.

They are: شبكة, the Arabic word for "web"; 游戏, the Chinese word for "game"; and the Russian words for "online" and "web site", онлайн and сайт.

Icann hopes hundreds of new top-level domains will eventually be made.

Until now, generic top-level domains (gTLDS) - as they are known - were limited to mostly familiar endings such as .com, .net and .biz.

Ideas are funny little things, they won't work unless you do.
