Issue 54 – The Story Behind The New TLDs

Significantly expand the range of TLDs outside the restraints of .COM, .NET, .ORG and the other few domain endings that had been available. It would take a lot of work, discussion and money, but the result would mark a significantly large change for the Internet’s infrastructure, hopefully for the better.  Once moving forward, the web would stand “at the cusp of a new era of online innovation,” as then ICANN CEO Rod Beckstrom described the initiative back in June of 2011. The first new domain suffixes could hit as soon as May of next year. Here we take a look back at the key moments that made the historic expansion of TLDs possible:
