dot.cymru

It seems that ICANN the Internet naming board will be expanding the number of internet domain names starting in January 2012. Hopefully included within the available domain names will be dot.cymru the culmination of a long campaign by Sion Jobbins and others. As with all these good news stories there seems to be a downside and the downside to this is that ICANN are using this expansion to charge a fee of $185,000 for registering the domain name. Hopefully the Welsh Government will fund this so as to promote Wales on the world stage.

What an absolute waste of public funds! I do not see how a domain name can enhance the properity of Wales. I hope the Welsh Government do not bow to this nationalist agenda.
