.car domain names probably to be expected soon
Now that several car constructors want to introduce full Internet access in cars, there’s much ado about creating a new domain: .car. This domain suffix would allow websites that are equipped with it to indicate that their format is adapted to the dashboard screen, just as .mobi websites’ formats indicate that they are adapted to mobile phones.
This being said, surfing in cars does require some additional measures. To meet with these prerequisites, the automobile industry wants to build in preventive measures that will stop the driver from downloading streaming video while driving, in order to avoid distraction behind the wheel. Furthermore, a very powerful firewall needs to be implemented that prevents the content downloaded from Internet from contaminating the onboard computer system of the car with all sorts of malware that could endanger the car’s safe functioning.
