.Gay Domain Extension Proposed; Would You Want to Have it for Your Website?

The web is obviously expanding. And with the expansion of the .com universe so to speak, groups are proposing new domains to cater to the insatiable web appetite.

While he already have .tv, .org., .net and many more, a group is proposing for .gay domain.

Scott Seitz, CEO of dotGay said during an interview with CNET that having a .gay domain is quite a challenging task with all the opposition and criticisms that need to be hurdled.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) was reported most recently to have opened new domain name extensions.

Seitz added,

"We're getting ready to see the Internet reborn again in a very different way. And [...] such a limited number of people were even aware of it. I got involved because I saw what the opportunity was for the gay community. .gay will be a venue for enhancing our ability to interact with each other as a community."

The group is seeing that anti-gay groups will be the first to prevent a .gay domain extension from being officially used in the web.

What do you think of having .gay domain extension?
