Its decided!! Internet is gonna change in the bigway.

The vote to lift restrictions on top level domain names wins the approval. The net's regulator, Icann, voted unanimously to relax the strict rules on so-called "top-level" domain names, such as .com or .uk.

The decision means a domain name can be anything.anything . So the big debated .xxx is going to happen. So far Icann has rejected calls for a .xxx domain on the grounds that it might be forced to act as a censor. But now it could get the green light.

A second proposal, to introduce domain names written in Asian, Arabic or other scripts, was also approved.
