Visit the web site, which makes a direct assault on the ICANN monopoly, which offers an additional 20 TLDs for $25.00 per year. The new TLDs include .kids, .travel, .law, .med, .sport, .tech, .mp3 and .xxx.  They supposedly work with the existing domain name system (DNS) infrastructure and says it has partnered with an infrastructure service company called UltraDNS to make access to the new TLDs generally available. says it  has agreements with Earthlink, Excite@Home and Net Zero that allow customers of those ISPs to reach the new TLDs.  Other Internet users may reach them via a downloadable plugin.

Competition is better than Monopoly!
