Don't hold your breath for '.MLS'

ICANN may not approve new 'top level' domains before 2012

The list of multiple listings services seeking to create and manage a new top-level Internet domain, .MLS, continues to grow, but the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) now looks unlikely to approve any such requests until early 2012.

The MLS Domains Association, launched with 15 members in March, now counts 45 MLSs and Realtor associations representing more than 575,000 brokers and agents as members.
