          It has been almost a year since The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approved seven new top-level Internet domains, but not one has been launched. That's about to change.

          Two of the new domains .biz and .info will launch October 1, and the .name domain will be activated December 13.

          Contracts for three other domains are being finalised by Marina del Rey, California-based ICANN: .museum for museums, .coop for business cooperatives and .aero for the airline industry. An agreement for the seventh domain, .pro, hasn't yet been finalised.
