In late September, Google began publishing a new Web site using the .google, rather than the standard .com, URL extension as its domain name. The new site, blog.google, consolidates 19
previously separate Google blogs, according to CNet. The move takes advantage of a two-year-old rule that changed the limits for suffixes known as top-level domain names. CNet reports that others
were approved too, such as .ford, .homedepot, and .hbo, among others.
