Business Constituency tries to plug holes in gTLD process: Applications for gTLD IDN

Applications for gTLD IDNs

"When it comes to the next billion users, many of them are going to be using languages and scripts other than Latin and English," DelBianco noted.

But so far there appears to be very little interest or public awareness of "gTLD IDNs" - Internet extensions that are in different languages that can also be applied for through the new gTLD program.

The Business Constituency urged the Board to "do everything possible to avoid disappointment by getting new TLDs in under-served linguistic communities", including giving incentives or discounts so applicants will roll out multiple versions of their top-level domain in multiple scripts.
