Think '.com' is too common? Apply for a '.shop' domain instead

Singapore businesses can now apply to get rid of the '.com' at the end of their Web addresses and substitute something that reflects their business like '.shop'. The global governing body for Internet addresses has given Singapore the green light for a new programme that allows businesses to register for their very own top level domain (TLD). Icann (Internet Corp for Assigned Names and Numbers) approved this new programme in Singapore in June this year. A TLD is a Web domain at the highest level used on the Net. The '.com' domain is a TLD that has been around since 1985. Entrepreneurs can also register for generic TLDs such as '.shop' or '.doctor', and lease them to relevant businesses.
