The .asia domains will be made available soon, ICANN revealed at a conference in Brasil yesterday. The new domain grew from the agreement made between ICANN and the dotAsia Organisation Ltd.
The birth of dot-asia as a TLD (top level domain) should be worth watching since it is not associated with a specific country.
ICANN's board of directors also approved the registry agreements for the dot-biz, dot-org and dot-info TLDs (top level domains), with a caps of 10% on price increases by registry operators.
