First IDN ccTLDs now available

by Kim Davies on May 5, 2010

Today the first three production non-Latin top-level domains were placed in the DNS root zone. This means they are live! Here is one newly enabled domain with a functional website that works right now: وزارة-الأتصالات.مصر or http://xn----rmckbbajlc6dj7bxne2c.xn--wgbh1c/
If your software does not have full IDN support, this might not work exactly as expected. You may see a mangled string of letters and numbers, and perhaps some percent signs or a couple of “xn--”s mixed into the address bar.


The three new top-level domains are السعودية. (“Al-Saudiah”), امارات. ( “Emarat”) and مصر. (“Misr”). All three are Arabic script domains, and will enable domain names written fully right-to-left. Expect more as we continue to process other applications using the “fast track” methodology.
ICANN staff are still finishing the processing of these domain’s delegations, but now that they are visible in the root zone it is fair to say these are mostly formalities. The remaining tasks include final technical verifications, updating the IANA WHOIS database and publishing the delegation reports.
Now the hard work happens in the countries which have their new IDN ccTLDs. They will now commence their own processes to launch the domains in a way that gives their communities access to put them to day-to-day use.

Re: idn cctld's live in the root : icann

Yep, all you have to do is add the language to IE8 and it works sweet as a nut. No phishing going on there then!

But only from the orignal ICANN link. The IDNForums link doesn't do it.

Go to the icann page and hit the domain link. Works fine in Firefox.

I am very psyched. The good news just keeps coming, and IDN values will just keep rising.

Very good news. Hopefully it won't be too long now until the TLDs finally get sorted out and become active.

It's RD's fault so he should break the news. Without all that hot air he was blowing a few years ago, I, and many of us, wouldn't be here.

Cheers to everyone. Exciting times for sure.

Re: idn cctld's live in the root : icann

Looks like Sammy wins the prize with the closest guess here: http://www.idnbusiness.com/2010/01/w...-be-added.html His guess was only 12 days off.

Congrats Sammy, I'll have to sort through my list to pick a nice one for you. :D

Re: idn cctld's live in the root : icann

Looking good here on Safari/Mac

Party time!

Tried to send the URL with http:// on front to someone via iChat/AIM and I got an error. Sent OK stripped down to just the domain name.

Interesting that they're using a domain with a hyphen in it.

Re: idn cctld's live in the root : icann

saw this today....

Nice to see that Portugal is adding chinese to its mix....

http://www.visitportugal.com/Culture...N/default.html


soon , a site like this will use IDN's to grab traffic and interest...

and will be completely routine for a tourist bureau to have 10 site names etc...rather than 10 mini buttons.

.po in a week or so it seems........very nice...

my bottles are lined up nicely now....

finished...tequila for the Arabic names.....cinco de mayo.... check...done...2x

1- padron....salt lime
2-and a Molson chaser....need to re stock the Heine's....for my single Dutch IDN

( mint tea seemed a little tame for the occasion today..)

vodka is lined up for my Russians'....
I have a bottle of Stoli...but my wife may push me to pour the Grey Goose (french) for her....oh well...


My bottle of Chinese soju ...is ready...

(c'mon the SH Expo launched...can you guys at cnnic/icann do some ordinary PR timing .....ever ??)


My bottle of Japanese sake is likely to keep its dust for how long..??
JPNic ??? anybody home ???
jeeeeeeeeesh.


any way....back to the Padron... (grin)
