The original set of domain names (.com, .org and .net) quickly became overloaded, and a larger set of TLDs was needed, and a nonprofit organization named ICANN was created in 1998 to expand and manage the domain name system. ICANN reviewed proposals for new TLDs in 2000, and seven new TLDs were approved out of over 180 proposal. By year 2008 when it's 10th birthday of ICANN, the number of Internet's generic top-level domains has been expanded from three to 16, including .info, .biz, .cat, .asia, .mobi and .name.
