Post Sri Lanka, Thailand Among Those Getting New IDN Domain Names

Sri Lanka and Thailand join ranks of countries getting their own ccTLD in their own language.

ICANN has delegated five more internationalized domain names for top level country code domain names.

Yesterday the ICANN board approved a resolution delegating two top level domains for Sri Lanka and one for Thailand:

Delegation of IDN ccTLDs:

1. Sri Lanka

Whereas, Sri Lanka is a country currently listed in the ISO 3166-1 standard.

Whereas, .ලංකා (“Lanka”), encoded as “xn--fzc2c9e2c”; and .இலங்கை (“Ilangai”), encoded as “xn--xkc2al3hye2a”; are both strings that have been deemed to appropriately represent Sri Lanka through the IDN Fast Track process.

Whereas, ICANN has received requests for delegation of .ලංකා and .இலங்கை to LK Domain Registry.

Whereas, ICANN has reviewed the requests, and has determined that the proposed delegations would be in the interests of the local and global Internet communities.

RESOLVED (2010.08.05.03), the proposed delegation of .ලංකා to LK Domain Registry is approved.

RESOLVED (2010.08.05.04), the proposed delegation of .இலங்கை to LK Domain Registry is approved.

2. Thailand

Whereas, the Thailand is a country currently listed in the ISO 3166-1 standard.

Whereas, .ไทย (“Thai”), encoded as “xn--o3cw4h”, is a string that has been deemed to appropriately represent Thailand through the IDN Fast Track process.

Whereas, ICANN has received a request for delegation of .ไทย to the Thai Network Information Center Foundation.

Whereas, ICANN has reviewed the request, and has determined that the proposed delegation would be in the interests of the local and global Internet communities.

RESOLVED (2010.08.05.05), the proposed delegation of the .ไทย domain to the Thai Network Information Center Foundation is approved.

A number of Arabic domain names were also delegated:

فلسطين (“Falasteen”), encoded as “xn--ygbi2ammx” to Occupied Palestinian Authority

تونس (“Tunis”), encoded as “xn--pgbs0dh” to Tunisia

الاردن (“al-Ordon”), encoded as “xn--mgbayh7gpa” to Jordan
