Movement for '.MLS' domain picks up steam

34 MLSs with 503,000 subscribers on board

A total of 34 multiple listing services representing 503,000 real estate brokers and agents are now backing an effort to create and manage a new "generic" top-level Internet domain, .MLS, that only MLSs would be allowed to use.

That’s up from 18 members in June, when the MLS Domains Association announced it was postponing until next year a planned application to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to create and manage the .MLS domain.
