ICANN Moves Ahead with International Domains

Quote:
At some point in early 2010, the world will see the first full domain names in a non-Latin based alphabet.

The first Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) for use as country-code top-level domains (ccTLDs) are now being considered as part of the process begun in November by Internet governance organization ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).

The process by which IDNs for the ccTLDS will be granted by ICANN is now underway, with the first applications submitted. It's not yet clear which country or language will be the first IDN, though each new IDN granted will represent a milestone for the language and country represented. While some have raised concerns over the safety of IDNs, ICANN is taking steps to minimize any potential spoofing or phishing related risks.
"So far we have received 16 applications, and they are spread across six different languages," Tina Dam, senior director of IDNs at ICANN, told InternetNews.com.
Quote:
"I've always said we'd see the first IDNs in early 2010, and now it's very early in 2010," Dam said. "It really does depend on the applicant. As soon as we're through the technical panel, it's really up to them (the applicants). If the application is really complete it could go very fast. We've said early 2010 because we think some then will be fast and very complete."

Re: ICANN Moves Ahead with International Domains

When is the next board meeting? Probably couple of weeks after that.

I thought there was one early January but 4th Feb is the first one listed.

I would have to say a not very educated guess.

Re: ICANN Moves Ahead with International Domains

I don't think anyone will be "first".

There will be a whole bunch all added to the root at the same time.

Re: ICANN Moves Ahead with International Domains

Many may be delegated at once, but Russia is in the early stage of a Sunrise, with an Auction. IDN Dot CN are already out there. So China is more or less over the finish line before the race starts.
