+ - ICANN starts rolling out new generic top-level domains->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "ICANN has introduced the first new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) to the Internet's root zone, the central database for the Internet's Domain Name System, paving the way for possibly 1,400 new domain names from the current 22. It will take 30 days and some more procedures for people to start accessing the new domains, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers said Wednesday. The "delegation" or introduction into the Internet's root zone of four new gTLDs starts a so-called "Sunrise" period to give trademark holders an opportunity to register second-level domains corresponding to their marks, wrote Akram Atallah, president of ICANN's Generic Domains Division in a blog post.http://blog.icann.org/2013/10/dawn-of-a-new-internet-era/ The four newly delegated gTLDs are in Arabic, Chinese and Cyrillic scripts."
