IDN.com in Ad in the Shanghai Subway Station

A couple of days ago, taking the subway, I saw this ad.

And having an idn-fetish you can guess what I noticed.




For the whole ad see my blog

For some reason the website www.第一财经.com doesn't resolve. (CBN has registered the domain, I checked to make sure.)

Their old fashioned domain is: http://www.china-cbn.com/

Great to see IDN's getting a bit extra exposure in China. Typical though that the website feature in the advertising is not resolving. Seems to be a pretty big site though.

Interesting also to see the choice of .com over .cn

@cdehoo

I agree it maybe still early but how do you know that the ad was canceled. It was there yesterday.

For me the .cn version unfortunately also doesn't resolve.

Jennings describes being nominated to the board of ICANN, which is responsible for international domain name policy, as a great honour for an Irishman.

He will take up the position at the end of October. He says a reason why he was selected out of 70 names put forward was his combination of internet, management and commercial experience.

“I’m a physicist by education but I’ve a lot of research experience, I’ve been involved in networking globally, setting up domain name registries, investing in technology companies and running venture capital firms. I suspect my profile is a little unusual. I guess the hope is to bring different point of view.”

Jennings says that one of the prime challenges facing ICANN is the introduction of International Domain Names (IDNs) other than in Latin script. “We need to create top-level domains that take into account Chinese and Arabic script. These have to be introduced and we need to ensure they are fairly competed for.”

He says the issue of IDNs will be important to international commerce. “If you’re a Western business, reaching out to a Chinese market of over 2 billion people, for example, will be important.

“IDN is one of the most important challenges facing ICANN over the next year or so,” Jennings concluded.
