Post Frank Says : IDN Domainers everywhere are being redeemed

"IDN Domainers everywhere are being redeemed by the coming of URL's which resolve in different character sets. This is more of those early rumblings

A 24-hour hot line is being established to allow ICANN to quickly suspend the test if any problems might disrupt other domains such as ".com" and ".uk."

Tina

It strikes me that ICANN have actually been trying to face down the US Commerce Dept who have clearly been dragging their heals making the decision on this. They are probably still sat there trying to figure out what Punycode means. It seems to me that ICANN probably with Chinese support are trying to apply some real heat.

It is clearly time that US was relieved of its responsibilities relating to the Internet, as they are clearly incapable of discharging them properly!

They added .mobi without it causing any problems.

Why would any other character string be any different? Just because it starts with xn and has hyphens in it?

If there ARE going to be any problems it's giong to be at the client level where the punycode conversion goes on, not in the fucking DNS!

Re: Frank Says : IDN Domainers everywhere are being redeemed

Absolutely correct, but they are really just killing time whilst they get the policy issues resolved.

By the time they managed to do that IDN.com will be a defacto standard since confidence in ccTLDs has now been pretty much undermined.

I was please, however, to see they are promoting Opera.

Actually, for IDNs now, any publicity is good publicity. They can continue behaving like clowns while we wait for IE7 take up.

Re: Frank Says : IDN Domainers everywhere are being redeemed

Hopefully a lot of people will take the ICANN lead and download Opera.

This information is already being syndicated around ther Far East. I have seen it in the Malaysia Star.

If that happens MS is between a rock and hard place.

I would love nothing more than to see MS go down down down. Actually, I want to see Steve Ballmer conceding defeat and applying for a job at Google.
