Bulgaria Looks Forward to Site Domains in Cyrillic

Bulgarian residents will be able to register domain names in Cyrillic by the end of the year, the country's foreign minister vowed.

The goal was described by Foreign Minister Ivaylo Kalfin as part of the state policy, even though the press conference he gave was part of his electioneering as Socialists' top candidate for the European Parliament.

Minister Kalfin explained that Bulgaria has submitted an application for registering domain names in Cyrillic a day before Russia.

"Bulgaria will be visited by the world's top experts in this field on May 26. The Russians are also working very hard as well," the minister pointed out.

The minister spoke on May 24 when Bulgaria celebrates the day of the Bulgarian Education and Culture and Slav Letters and pays tribute to the deed of Sts Cyril and Methodius, the creators of the Cyrillic alphabet.

Oct. 08'-Bulgarian Group Challenges ICANN's restriction of IDNs to Governments
A Bulgarian group has proven that our earlier concerns about the connection between fast-track IDN country code top level domains (ccTLDs) and government control of the Web were not hypothetical. A group known as UNINET would like to become the manager of an IDN top level domain composed of two Cyrillic letters that stand for “Bulgaria.” In UNINET's letter to ICANN, the group claims to have the support of many businesses and users as well as “15 Bulgarian Internet providers, the first Bulgarian WiMax provider and the biggest Internet provider in Sofia,” the capital city.

On the other hand, ICANN seems to be intent on restricting the right to apply for the domain to the Bulgarian government, which has some censorship problems, and the incumbent ccTLD operator. At a recent meeting in Sofia regarding this issue, ICANN deliberately excluded UNINET from being admitted to the meeting. ICANN staff have refused to respond to any inquiries about this shameful episode. END ARTICLE

Re: Bulgaria Looks Forward to Site Domains in Cyrillic

.ccTLD domains, IDNs or ASCII, have to be managed by respective governments right, not "people who claim to have a lot of support by local businesses"???
