The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will vote Thursday on possible new internet domains.Washington (ChattahBox) – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will vote Thursday on possible new internet domains.

ICANN will meet in Paris, France on Thursday to vote on a proposal which would change how companies buy domains.

The non-profit group is trying to decide whether or not companies should be able to create their own domain.

This means that a company will not be limited to .com, .org, .net, etc.

They would be able to create their own. For example, Microsoft could buy www.Windows.Microsoft as their new address.

The new domains will be expensive at around $50,000 to register, and could be ready by 2009.
