It seems everybody's looking to make a buck from IDNs. All in all not so bad to have everyone on the bandwagon.

It seems everybody's looking to make a buck from anything... one letter, top keywords, .cm typos, higher prices...

Re: .eu idns

idn dot EU is more politically significant than idn dot mobi ...by 100X

in many ways, average users don't know technically dot EU is a cctld ...
even though it is a group of nations...not one of course...



but in the grand scheme dot EU is culturally a GTLD...

I think if German domains as IDN dot eu's were to be used that would be a big boost to IDN dot com 's in German...

German user comfort with IDN's in dot DE/EU/COM would be mutually beneficial across all three... for direct type in......and comfort in billboard ads etc...


Also......dot EU when they go with IDN.IDN variants are going to have go with variants for cyrillic/greek/turkish.....maybe even arabic in France/ Italy ???.....

It should be interesting if they go with the 2 character rule 100% or
go with several variants that are 'Euro' or Europe fully expressed in IDN punycode....

Again. the 2 character cctld string mandate is an issue for some....

again...typing the 2 ASCII characters straight up through habit is likely.......
and again ......except for right to left.....(sigh)....(grin)

Re: .eu idns

IDNs for .eu
Internationalised Domain Names (IDNs) are domain names that may contain non-ASCII characters. These characters include letters with accents and characters in non-Latin languages such as Greek, for example.

The public policy rules for .eu (EC regulation 874-2004) states, "The Registry shall perform the registration of domain names in all the alphabetic characters of the official languages when adequate international standards become available."

The implementation of IDNs under .eu will support all characters of all the 23 official EU languages.

EURid is working in close contact with the European Commission regarding the introduction of IDNs to the .eu TLD. The European Commission is looking into an amendment of the legal framework to adapt it where necessary.

A timeline for the launch of IDNs will be made available on this page in a timely manner.

IDN preparations to date
To prepare for the introduction of IDNs, EURid formed an IDNs Advisory Board in June 2007. Individuals chosen for the board are active members of the Internet community who had a background in intellectual property rights and/or trademarks along with strong expertise in the area of IDNs.

At the end of September 2007, the Advisory Board completed its work and presented several options on how EURid might introduce IDNs. The board also formulated a recommendation regarding the scripts to be implemented.

Apart from the IDNs Advisory Board, EURid launched two additional consultations in the form of surveys:

•A survey of CENTR members
CENTR is the Council of European National Top Level Domain Registries, a not-for profit association of Internet country code top-level domain registries such as .uk for United Kingdom and .fr for France. The survey, which ran between 22 November 2007 and 29 January 2008, was answered by 18 registries. The results of the survey don’t indicate a particular trend in favour of Sunrise or Landrush introduction of IDNS as those who favoured one solution or another were motivated by internal considerations, some of which linked with the local Internet communities and with their organisational profile. It is worth noting that all registry representatives surveyed pointed out that, thus far, their volumes of registrations of IDNs are very limited.

•A public consultation
A survey on IDNs ran on the EURid public website between 14 January 2008 and 19 February 2008. The survey was available in 20 languages and a total of 430 stakeholders participated in the survey. While most of the respondents would like to have IDNs implemented under .eu as soon as possible, there was no clear strong preference regarding the approach to introducing IDNs. Sunrise and Landrush were supported more or less by the same percentage of respondents. See a summary of the results here (in English).

Re: .eu idns

Interesting if you read the comments.

.de and .es may already be satisfied because they already have IDNs

.fr may be not too excited since there is no IDN.fr

UK probably doesn't need them at all.

.gr well with the comments made... Yanni and Alex may want to catch some primes in Greek.

Italy probably could go either way.

Don't know about Portugal and Poland.

The real benefits will go to some of the eastern European countries and the
arabic speakers in the EU.
