Hundreds Of New Internet Domains Prepare To Launch

As soon as November, the first of hundreds of new domains come online. Get ready for .google, .app and .green. Kojo looks at the sweeping change about to hit the Internet.

Navigating the "information superhighway" may soon be even more complicated. As early as November, the first of hundreds of new domains will become available, vastly expanding the Internet from websites that end with traditional suffixes like .com.
