Prospering From Disaster
Traders Magazine, December 2000
Dotcom companies are falling on hard times but the folks who assign them their domain names couldn't be happier. Seven new suffixes are joining the established but overextended.com, .org and other suffixes. Spearheading the campaign is the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the Marina Del Rey, Calif. company chosen by the U.S. government in 1988 to handle Internet naming functions.
Among the many registration companies accredited by ICANN to assign names are Register.com (Nasdaq: RCOM), VeriSign (Nasdaq: VRSN), and Catalog.com (Nasdaq: CLGC).
