New TLDs Courtesy of Alternative Companies

August 03, 1996 in News

Frustrated with Network Solutions hold on the .com, .net, and .org domains, two companies (Macro Computer Systems and Alternic) have begun creating a series of new TLDs (top-level domain names) and are selling them directly to users.
