The body behind the world’s Internet domains wants to create something entirely new – and not for what you might think

In an effort to improve the security and stability of the global domain name system (DNC), the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has proposed the creation of a new top-level domain (TLD) for internal use.

The aptly named .internal TLD has emerged as a replacement for 1.9.168.xx IPv4 addresses by providing a designated space for private enterprise use and for device vendors.
