New Delhi, India (India Habitat Centre -- Jacaranda Hall)

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Number(ICANN), the global body which manages Internet names and numbers, will soon unleash new generic Top Level Domains (gTLD). These new gTLDs are designed to increase choice and competition for all Internet users. Soon, one can apply for the name of one's company such as .tata, .reliance or .sony or for a city name, such as .kolkata , .delhi and .mumbai. Rod Beckstrom, CEO and President of ICANN will share ICANN's perspective on the new gTLD program.

This half-day seminar will sensitize stake holders to the concept of new gTLDs, including the application process, time lines and financial implications.

The event is coordinated by the Department of Information Technology, Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, Afilias India Pvt. Ltd., National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) and Centre for Development of Advanced Computing.
