New Delhi: This week will witness a biggest change in the world of World Wide Web. After 30 years of its inception, internet will allow users to have domain names of their choice.
 
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) which decides who gets to manage .com, .net and other domains to the right of the period in a URL, plans to begin accepting applications this week for a hugely expanded number of Web domain options.

For instance, you can apply for a domain name after yourself or your company. Like .ravi if your name is Ravi or .pepsi.

At present there are about 22 types of top-level domains (TLDs) such as .com or .gov; and country codes such as .in for India and .uk for the United Kingdom.

Reportedly, anyone will be able register any web address suffix for USD 185,000 (Rs 9,754,051 approx).
