    ICANN has decided to ban the use of dotless domains


    The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has decided to ban the use of dotless domain names.

    In a resolution issued earlier this week, the non-profit organization defined dotless domains to mean "consist of a single label and require the inclusion of, for example, an A, AAAA, or MX, record in the apex of a TLD zone in the DNS."

    In plainer terms, this means Internet users won't be seeing Web addresses that look like, "http://insert name here." The basic URL protocol and format remains the same.

    ICANN has been revisiting Web address formats for some time now

    I don't think I've ever seen one like that anyway.
