New Net Addresses on the Way

Share this article:
The Web's governing body yesterday approved the .biz and .info suffixes for use on the Internet.


NeuLevel, the company that administers .biz addresses, will restrict .biz to commercial businesses, while .info addresses, managed by Afilias, will be made available to the general public.


The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers selected seven new domain names in November. Agreements with the operators of the five other domains -- .aero for aviation, .coop for business cooperatives, .museum for museums, .name for individuals and .pro for professionals -- are expected shortly, according to reports.


ICANN's approval allows NeuLevel and Afilias to begin the process of making addresses available.


NeuLevel expects to offer .biz addresses in October, while Afilias plans to start assigning .info addresses in August.
