Indian Domain Names - One script takes all!

“The same letter may exist both in Tamil and Hindi. Also, within a language it can be represented visually through different set of Unicode characters. We are trying to make the IDNs phishing and spoofing proof,” Aggarwal added.

Currently, any letter in a Devanagiri, Gurmukhi or any other regional script font can be created visually using different codes.

Simply put, if Ram.com is created using one script, the same can be created visually by using a different set of codes. It may lead to a rise in phishing or spoofing of identities.

But NIXI is drafting a counter policy on the same. “To counter this, we will block alternate identities of the same name, which can be created by different codes, except the original identity for every user. We will have a scientific formula on how the visual representation of each character in the domain name will be made. Also, we will have a simple dispute resolution policy,” he adds.

This means that the landrush for dot IN is actually going to be quite limited. Basically if you get Hindi, you get all the others.

Rather it seems that if you get it in Hindi (or another language) you will BLOCK all the others. Just like now in .com if you get one Chinese variant, you block the other variants.

This is a really, really bad move.

Re: Indian Domain Names - One script takes all!

And if anybody in the registry/friends takes exception (they think they may be worth money) to those names regged they may well be taken back as in the case of many ascii.in

caveat emptor
