Breaking News - IDN Domains to be cancelled

April 1, 2006 (NOTE: April Fools Day!)
Breaking News - IDN Domains to be cancelled

Internet authority ITEX Intl. announced today that all IDN (Internationalized Domain Names) under the .com and .net extensions, under Verisign's testbed would be cancelled in preperation of the launch of full IDN domain names, in which the top and second levels (IDN.IDN) will be implemented. Many people who had invested thousands of dollars in registrations of IDN domains were first shocked by this news, until realizing this story was simply an april fools joke.

Re: Breaking News - IDN Domains to be cancelled

Actually I thought about this kind of joke yesterday but decided not to hurt people with such cruel method :-)

If nobody is hurt then it's fun. Happy April Fools Day!

Gaaaaa... had me going for a second, you're lucky you didn't get tarred & feathered for that one!

Umm... maybe we could at least get (April Fools!) added to the title? If not today, then tomorrow?

Well, I will remain in hiding until this one blows over! But, really, I did start it off with the date "April 1, 2006," which should have instantly given it away, and I could have used official names and dragged it out over several paragraphs, and when have you ever heard of "Internet authority ITEX Intl.?"
