    Perfect numbers revisited Read article in a new window

    Next gTLDs: 2016 or 2019? Read article in a new window

    On September 22, 2014, ICANN published an analysis of the review and assessment work that remains to be done before a new round of gTLD (generic Top Level Domain) applications can be initiated.

    What have we learned from .com ? Could new gTLDs help create a cleaner and more resilient internet? Read article in a new window

    Phishing, malware, DNS highjacking .. almost all of us will have suffered from at least one of these abuses of the internet at some time or another, but with the new generic top-level domains (gTLDs), can we now build a unique, trusted internet space? I believe we can, and it will prove invaluable.
