Yesterday, during their meeting in Paris, ICANN announced a change in their policy for adding new generic TLDs to the DNS. Although this change has been planned for a while, I think it caught quite a few of us off guard. Many details are not available at this time, but it sounds like a new gTLD will cost on the order of $100,000 and we won't be seeing many new ones for another year or so. Some interesting discussions are taking place on the NANOG and dnssec-deployment mailing lists and Circle-ID has some good, articles as well. DW
