The Internet is Changing
One of the biggest changes and most exciting opportunities in the history of the Internet is here! The Internet landscape is changing dramatically, as existing domains like .com, .net and .org are being joined by .cool, .fun, .ninja, many others, and of course, .BIBLE too.
Why Is This Change Happening?
Have you ever tried to register a domain name only to find that your first, second or third choice had already been taken? While there are still lots of available .com, .org and other domain names, to get a domain you really want takes a lot of luck, a lot of money, or a lot of creativity. Now the organization charged with overseeing the internet addressing system, The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), is expanding the number of available Top Level Domains (TLD)—the part to the right of the dot in a web address. This will greatly increase consumer choice and help fuel new innovations on the World Wide Web.
