Web addresses up for sale

Uploaded by AlJazeeraEnglish on 12 Jan 2012 - Web addresses like dot com, dot org, or dot UK have shaped the way we navigate the web, but now that is about to change. Anyone can now apply for an address using pretty much anything in any language and script.

Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the organisation which manages the addresses, says the changes will open the internet to the world. Applying for the suffix though is not cheap; you will have shell out a whopping $185,000 to buy an internet domain name ending in any word you like. Big corporate are expected to be first in line to register their brands.
