One of the latest (11/16/2000) extentions for domain names.
This domain name extention was organized under the laws of England and Wales. This domain suffix is intended to be used for personal web sites and E-Mail addresses.

Other domain names that were approved at this time were:
and .pro

The intent of this new domain is to let people register third-level domains, like, rather than second-level domains as in the other global TLDs.

.name strikes me as a silly thing to use for this purpose -- aren't all domain names names? Well, actually, they're addresses, but they're also names. I would have preferred the earlier proposal for .per for personal domains; this would be properly analogous to the other three-letter TLDs standing for other categories of users such as "commercial", "military", etc.
