Web address system faces changes

The way the internet handles website domains is going to change, following an update to the core "addressing system".

If we continue with the current way of allocating web addresses, we will run out of available domain names by 2011.

So the internet's master address book is being updated to include records written in a new format, IP version 6, which will help to create millions of new potential web addresses.

The problem occurs because people and the internet use two different methods to call up web pages: we type words into the address bar of our browser, whereas our computers translate that into a string of numbers to find the page that you are looking for. This numerical string is taken from the internet's master address book of domains.
