At the recent ICANN 22th International Conference held at Mar del Plata, Argentina, the I CAN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), has officially designated three new top-level domain names: .Jobs and .Trip and .UE.

Tralliance will operate the new .travel domain and Employ Media will exploit the .jobs. field. Registration will begin in a few months. Prices have not yet been determined.

.jobs was created for staff related companies, .travel for the travel industry and .eu will be used by organizations based in the European Union.

ICANN has also started negotiations with the .cat, .post and .mobi domain registries.

ICANN, established by the US Department of Commerce in 1998, is a non-profit corporation responsible for the technical coordination of the Internet through the sale of domain names and IP addresses.
