ICANN announced a unanimous vote to begin discussions for several new TLDs. Several companies have submitted applications (at a cost of $45,000 per application) to operate new TLD Registries. Preliminary approval was given to the .post and .travel TLDs. Other TLD applications include .cat, .xxx, and .mail. These would be the first new TLDs since the creation of .biz, .info, .aero, and four additional extensions in 2000.
