The ICANN board voted unanimously on Thursday to approve plans to add more generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) to the Internet’s naming system. They also voted to put on a fast track the implementation of a limited number of Internationalized (non-ASCII) country code TLDs (IDN ccTLDs). The vote is the result of a Policy Development process that was initiated in 2005. Final implementation proposals will be presented to the board in Cairo in December.
