Sounds like we're going to get a vast swathe of new domain suffixes with companies being able to register 'their' name and/or brand(s) as a suffix.

So, for instance, Canon will be able to have the web address www.cameras.canon

What do you feel about this? Is it necessary? Is it confusing? Is it going to devalue .com domains?

Ridiculous idea. The beauty of domain names at the moment is that they're simple. This seems to be trying to fix something that isn't broken.

It has to be profiteering on some level?

Hi...Saw recently Samoa Tourism Authority using samoa.travel domain. It seems it fit perfectly for the topic of this site.
I do not think people will rush for such new domain names, but in the longer term, the pockets of wholesale traders of .com, etc. domains will become "less fat" Very Happy
I think .com will stay as the top domain registration option. But other like .biz or .net become less popular in the longer run.
As for me, I will stick to .com. Have bought a year ago domain best-hotels-travel.com for $1,-. and didn't know what to do with it. Recently, I have transfered it to Namecheap and started developing travel directory
The listing will be $100,- so all the junk and spammers will give up on me! Laughing Joking, but It will be very manually edited, without automated form submitting! Time will show. I will let you know on travel forum, too.
