ICANN warning : Moore’s Law affects gTLD domains!

Verisign domain report.

Verisign domain report.

Verisign, overlords of dot .com and dot .net, recently announced that there are now 314,000,000 domains, and almost 125 million are dot .com.

Upon reviewing the latest statistics and extrapolating the data along an XYZ matrix, ICANN issued a warning to domain investors, titled “Moore’s Law and the gTLD future of domains.”

“The current total number of gTLDs is 976; however, that number is rapidly increasing.  After running some projections on a Commodore Amiga 500, we have confirmed that in the year 2029, the number of extensions (gTLDs) will exceed the total number of domains,” said Markus Klobalds of ICANN.

The shocking news might sway Verisign from its top spot, which it has held for more than 20 years.

ICANN’s computer model also signified that the solution to this mathematical problem is unique:

“The only way to avoid this trajectory towards a paradox, is if some extensions don’t have any domains registered, “ added Markus Klobalds, pointing to an Amiga 500 screen that flickered.

ICANN plans to introduce a URL reversal computational model, that would reverse the URL in a browser: The TLD will have to be typed in first, and the domain second, after the ‘.’

“We are currently working with Uniregistry, the largest contributor of this approaching problem, to ensure that there is a future for domains, domain investors, and the global Internet,” said Markus Klobalds of ICANN.

Clearly not the best of news on a manic Monday for domain investors.
