2012 Will See One of the Biggest Changes in the History of the Internet. Are You Ready?

14 September 2011

In January 2012, companies, organisations, causes, start-ups and even cities will be able to apply for their own web domain. This represents a fundamental change to the way we use the Internet and many feel this will offer new global branding and marketing opportunities.

Join the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), overseers of the new domain application and approval process, for an informative and thought-provoking discussion on all aspects of the new Generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) program.
