Yesterday a “new” domain extension was added to the root nameservers.
It’s not really “new”, as it was approved ages ago, but hadn’t been delegated.
The .post TLD will be run for post offices and only post offices, so don’t expect to see too many domain names using it.. It’ll be interesting to see which ones actually do..
The “news” broke last night via Jeff Moss’ twitter account
