ICANN | ICANN Approves Historic Change to Internet's Domain Name System

Historic Change....But Not For You....

As ICANN won't even consider applications from individuals or sole proprietorships, effectively ignoring the interests and needs of the majority of Internet users worldwide. Add to this equation non-refundable fees of $185,000 per TLD (plus potentially unlimited annual costs/expenses) and how many new ICANN TLDs will actually be launched?

ICANN's main aims are to convince Internet users that they're the only game in town and then try to herd everyone into a tiny part of an otherwise infinite universe. In this respect, ICANN has been quite successful. However, it's rather like telling people that the only place they can shop on the entire planet is your local Safeway (not that one...the other one) and that really…..really, there's nowhere else to go. Of course this is sheer nonsense and it’s understandable that people are starting to use Alternatives.

Anyone can now create their own set of Top Level Domains at no cost and without reference to ICANN, simply by opting to register NON-ICANN Dashcom (not Dotcom) domain names. Dashcoms are highly memorable & relevant web addresses such as "business-com", "music-store", “basket-ball”. Now available in any language or text, even Facebook Emoticons can be used (eg: musical notes "♫♫-♫♫").

Here is a part of the Internet that’s totally outside ICANN's control yet able to exist quite happily alongside it. At present, resolution is via an APP, but new ISP links are coming online to negate that need.

It’s only a matter of time before other new options surface, and none of them will have anything to with ICANN.

I would never even consider it for $185,000 and to be honest I don't think many people would. It seems this only applies to large corporations as you say...at least for the forseeable future.

Cheers for the insight.

8 Bad Habits that Crush Your Creativity And Stifle Your Success | Copyblogger | Business Smash! | Scoop.it
“The brain is a wonderful organ. It starts the moment you get up and doesn’t stop until you get into the office.” ~ Robert Frost

It’s a myth that only highly intelligent people are creative.

In fact, research shows that once you get beyond an I.Q. of about 120, which is just a little above average, intelligence and creativity are not at all related.

That means that even if you’re no smarter than most people, you still have the potential to wield amazing creative powers.

So why are so few people highly creative?
