Google new web addresses to include '.lol'
Google has said it plans to run a series of new top-level domains, that will include ".google", ".youtube" and ".docs", which will be a part of the plan for major expansion of the web's addressing system.
In addition to that a new domain with ".lol", referring to the much used shortcut "laugh out loud" these days by the internet users will be started as, the search giant thinks that ".lol" had "interesting and creative potential".
Though, google had kept its plan secret to avoid the chaos of rival bids till Thrusday , when the deadlines for the application ended, according to The Telegraph.
Google has made more than 50 applications in total to Icann, the closest organisation to a governing body for the internet, for new alternatives to ".com" or ".co.uk".
If it happens so, it means that Google could provide each YouTube channel with its own simple address. As for, the current www.youtube.com/joebloggs would become www.joebloggs.youtube.
Vint Cerf, one of the inventors of the Internet, working for Google now, said that an expanded addressing system could make searching things on Internet much easier for the web users.
"By opening up more choices for Internet domain names, we hope people will find options for more diverse and perhaps shorter - signposts in cyberspace," he wrote on the company's blog.
The full list of almost 2,000 applications is still to be published on 13 June, because of a delay occurred due to a technical problem in the application system.
