Adding .app to the Internet

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:35 am


Bored with dot-com? Soon there may be dot-app for that. In the biggest expansion of Internet addresses, the organization that oversees the naming system said Wednesday that it had received 1,930 applications for new “top level domains,” the letters that follow the “dot.” The most sought-after extension is .app, with 13 applicants, ranging from Amazon to the .app Registry — though not Apple, the company that popularized the mobile application. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, known as Icann, is expected to approve hundreds of these extensions for use, the first of which should be in use by next year.
