It means if you are not using “www.” or using a dotless domain for your website, than your website will not be online anymore.

The Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has decided that all dotless domain names will be banned.

In a resolution of ICANN, they have issued earlier this week, they have defined a dotless domain as “consist of a single label and require the inclusion of, for example, an A, AAAA, or MX, record in the apex of a TLD zone in the DNS.”

In simpler term this means that “Internet user will not be able to see or access web addresses that look like, http://domainname.com”

ICANN has been revisiting Web address formats for some time now.

If you are using a dotless domain its time to shift your website at “www.” format, if your site go down it will be difficult for you to get everything back as per SEO perspective.
