No .бг for Bulgaria

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has turned down Bulgaria's proposal for a domain name in Cyrillic with a "бг" suffix.

Bulgaria's Ministry of Transport, Information Technologies and Communications said it has been informed about the decision late on Tuesday with a letter, which cites the similarity with Brazil's domain name with a “br“ suffix as the reason for the rejection.

The news does not come as a surprise since the proposed domain name was harshly criticized in Bulgaria long before it was submitted for approval by ICANN with opponents, saying it resembles too much Brazil's domain name.

Bulgaria's transport ministry is to launch a new survey among Bulgarians in a bid to find the best alternative domain name that the country can offer. The first poll launched a few months ago showed the second most preferred name to be with a "бгр" suffix.

At the beginning of May three Mideast countries and Russia became the first to get Internet addresses entirely in non-Latin characters.

Domain names in Arabic for Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were added to the Internet's master directories, following final approval last month by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. A suffix for Russia in Cyrillic was also added to the list shortly afterward.

ICANN said it has received a total of 21 requests for such domains representing 11 languages since it began accepting applications in November.

This is the first major change to the Internet domain name system since its creation in the 1980s.

On an interview today, the IT minister announced that Bulgaria will send a reconsideration request for the .бг string.

Original source : http://dariknews.bg/view_article.php?article_id=551142 (in Bulgarian)

-
Who will be the domain of Bulgaria in Cyrillic alphabet, after it emerged that looked like BR (Brazil) and will not happen?

Minister: Yes, we received a refusal for the BG domain. I personally believe that this domain is the best for Bulgaria and the same is considered perhaps by the majority of IT industry. Therefore, we will make a new request. Will ask for reconsideration.

And do not give up.

Minister: No, do not give up the registration of the domain. I think he has the greatest effect. Other abbreviations in Cyrillic in my opinion will not be so ...

BU, BYA, BGR ...

Minister: No, these are not so typical for Bulgaria and will not be so popular.

Even the whole "Bulgaria".

Minister: I think that will not be as popular as both letters БГ (BG)

How this will happen - the change of this refusal?

Minister: Well, to change that refusal is a new procedure in an international organization that approves the registration of those domains. We got the first refusal, but that does not mean that with the second procedure we will also get a refusal - its possible to obtain approval.

But what really count, because the simple logic is that true when you see BR in Brazil, right, it looks like BG of the Bulgarians. And because the Brazilians are the first - they give up?

Minister: No, they will not quit, of course, we still rely on a deeper examination of the problem and hopefully to be approved this abbreviation because it is most typical for Bulgaria and I think it will benefit the most , it introduce the Cyrillic alphabet.

Re: No .бг for Bulgaria

Jeez, Russia didn't put up a fight. They knew they weren't going to get .ру. Bulgaria knew there was a chance they weren't going to get .бг too. That's why they held the damn poll in the first place. Get over it, move on, and stop holding up your people's ability to use their own language online and then pretending it's ICANN that's holding you up.
