New gTLD, ICANN Briefing Session @ InnoCentre
After over 10 years discussion, new gTLD program will, officially, accept application next year globally. That means besides the existing domain names .com, .info, .net, .org, you can apply to run a new gTLD such as .web, .music, .shop, .nike, .ngo whatever you choose. New gTLD are changing the Internet.
The news is heating up fast in a global level. We believe it is time to let Hong Kong IT, business and legal community know what it is all about and how it will affect traditional and Internet business and how it can create new business opportunity in the cyberworld.
