Have you ever seen a .tel address?

What do you think when you see '.biz'?

By CBC News Community Team on 12nd June 2012

The organization that oversees the internet's top-level domain names - .com, .org, .net and such - will announce a list of new web address suffixes on Wednesday, culled down from about 2,000 proposals.

Is a .biz address the same as any other URL? (iStock)Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) bills the expansion as the largest since the creation of the Domain Name System in 1985.

There are now about 300 top-level domain names in existence, most of them specific to a country, like Canada's .ca.

Seven new top-level domains were approved in 2000, including .info and .biz, and more were introduced in 2005, like .jobs (intended for employment sites), .mobi (for mobile internet) and .tel (for communications services).

And the ICANN board approved .xxx for pornographic websites last year. The startup company behind .xxx now gets about $60 a year for every address registered, including from those who register to make sure their brands don't get associated with porn.

A new application process would allow up to 1,000 new top-level domains to be approved every year.

What do you think of websites that use an address suffix like .info or .biz? Have you ever seen a .tel address? Do you think it's a good idea to approve these new top-level domain names? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
