What is "TLDs"?
TLDs is the acronym for "top level domain names", .com, .net and .org are examples of top level domain names.

What's new about the TLDs?
In November 2000, the domain name governing body, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers(ICANN) approved 7 new TLDs in addition to current .com, .net and .org TLDs.  They are .aero, .biz, .coop, .info, .museum, .name and .pro.  On May 11, 2001, ICANN signed agreements with Neulevel and Afilia (the exclusive registries for .biz and .info respectively).  .biz and .info are the two of seven new TLDs ready to launch. 

The story behind the new TLDs
The web has seen an increase in users and online retailers in the past years. Thousands of domains names (.com, .org, .net) are registered each day. In order to keep up with the growth and the dynamics of the world wide web, ICANN announced on August 16, 2000 that it will bring forth new tlds (top level domains) to accommodate the expanding world wide web. The new tlds are said to become available for registration in the third quarter of 2001.
