Ever thought that domain name extensions were a bit limited and that we have to much reliance on .com and .co.uk? Well things are changing for the better it seems as a whole host of new extensions will soon be available:

In 2012, the next stage in the Internet’s revolution will begin: new top-level domains such as .sfo .berlin .nyc .web .eco .shop .gay .med .xxx .hotel .film .music. ICANN, the organization in charge of domain names, is planning on a dramatic rewriting of the rules for web addresses that could reduce the overwhelming importance of the .com domain. Under new ICANN rules, groups and organizations will able to apply for new Internet extensions (the part after the dot in a web address). Today there are just a few generic top-level domains (gTLDs), for example: .com, .net, .org, .biz, and .info. But ICANN is planning to open the door to potentially hundreds or more generic domain extensions.
