Future domain names will be local and international

ICANN, the international body that governs top-level domain names, will increase new domain name endings by 20%.  While the .com ending and U.S. based websites have dominated the Internet since the mid-90’s, the new domain name endings will be written in languages not based on the Roman alphabet. 

You can also look forward to local endings like .berlin and .nyc.  No word yet on .sf.
