Obama Sdministration Tries to Consider the ‘Dot-Gay’ Web Domains

The Obama Administration is striving to find out how to manage the formation of latest web domains, as the internet goes further than “.com” and “.org” to choices similar to “.gay”.

No less than 115 latest suffixes are in deliberation, as well as “.car, .health, .nyc, .movie, and .web,” CNET said and according to CNET the application procedure to make innovative domains may be confirmed in San Francisco in March.


Innovative web addresses are supervised by the California-based Corporation Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), under an agreement paid for by the government of United States.

CNET said the Obama government desires to place jointly a 100-nation consultative board that might refuse web domains members establish disagreeable.

The DotGayInitiative and the .GayAlliance are the two groups presently pushing for a “dot-gay.”

    Brand new addresses have already been launched under categories such as music, sports, social and many more. For the first time, Internet users can create their own set of Domain Names and TLDs totally free, all without any reference to ICANN.

    ISPs such as Dashworlds.com offer a parallel Internet using new Dashcom (not Dotcom) Domain Names. Dashcoms are brand new web addresses in the format http://sports-com or http://great-movies or http://stock-market (Examples Only). With users and members in over 90 countries worldwide, resolution is via an APP (although ISP links are now available to negate that need).
    Things change and grow. Not-so-long ago, people would have thought a web based magazine such as this to be a waste of time, effort and money. After all why would anyone want to fork out for hugely expensive computers, sign up for extra phone lines, buy modems and routers, buy an OS, learn how to use it all….Just so they could read a magazine?….Why?….When all they had to do was walk down to the local store.

    Having just one Internet in infinite cyberspace is like saying you can go visit anywhere in America just as long as you stick to route 66. So today, just as in the USA (and everywhere else in the world) the Internet has more than one road to travel.

    No, it’s not ICANN, but it’s the first real and viable alternative to hit the Internet. It works and it’s growing.
