UK capital gets approval to use .london domain
Johannesburg: London has reportedly got the approval to use the .london domain name in a bid to have its own identity in the world of the www.
The British capital is said to get internet addresses ending in .london domain from the next year after Icann, the global internet body, approved the suffix.
