New Internet domain names to be released today

By Laura Kittell. CREATED Feb 4, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The Internet is about to get a little more crowded today when hundreds of new domains become available.

But not everyone is happy about it.

After decades of the standard .com, these new websites will have all kinds of names.

The approved list includes .sexy, .ninja and .cool.

Organizers say the existing system has become too crowded and the expansion will help set brands apart.

For example, Coca Cola might want to register something like drink.coke, which would make its website easier to find.

Anyone will be able to purchase and create their own domain name. However, it is not cheap.

And, those unique names will be available in dozens of new languages, including Chinese and Arabic.
