The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann) has approved plans to create more domain names.
Organisations have been concerned for some time that existing top-level domains, led by .com and .org, are overcrowded and Icann will determine the precise new names at a meeting early next year.
The domains will be offered to organisations, and are unlikely to be freely available to subscribers. Some of the possibilities are .travel, .health and .news.
According to the BBC, any organisation can propose a name to Icann. But it must prove that the new domain will represent a well-defined community closely associated with the domain name, and pay a $50,000 application fee.
