Smile Re: españa.es

Ok so it is no suprise that red.es has finally decided to make a decision on the release of the domain.

At first the domain was just considered as "held" due to the confusingly simmilar nature of the domain.

After careful consideration by the register it was decided that the domain will only be allowed for register by the government of Spain alone. The Spanish government at this time has still not taken stake in the domain. I am sure it will be soon.

This is actually a victory for us IDNers.

Red.es The official register of Spain now considers the idn domain the same as its ascii counterpart.

This is a major step toward idn use and registration in Spain and the spanish speaking world.

Thanks to Patrick at 101domains for help in communication with red.es. It would have been nice to be the owner of this domain, but the results alone will help our cause for the promotion of idn domains across the world.
