The group in charge of URL suffixes on the Internet has approved over a thousand new names that are designed to widen the choices organizations have when it comes to how they name their website. Suffixes are what comes at the end of a web address, such as .COM or .EDU.

As you can see this opens up the field considerably and will allow for niches within the industry to differentiate themselves from one another. There are more on the complete list and many, many more coming to industries of every sector (.clothing, .plumbing, .menu—just to name a few).
