New: it-domains with special characters

The Italian Registry is changing its policies:
"The it-domains go beyond the European Union boundaries and “wear” the accent."

The date of 11th July marks a turning point: it-domains can be registered even with special characters like accented letters or non-Latin characters (IDN). It will be possible to register it-domains with non-ASCII characters such as à, â, ä, è, é, ê, ë, ì, î, ï, ò, ô, ö, ß, ù, û, ü, æ, œ, ç and ÿ.

Only companies and citizens from the EU can register today it-domains. This will change too at 11th July. Additional to the 27 countries of the European Union, citizens and companies of the countries of the European Economic Space - including Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Vatican,San Marino and Switzerland- will be able to register it-domains.

Re: New: it-domains with special characters

If you are interested, valuable words in italian are:
casinò (!!!!) casino
pubblicità (!!!) advertising
caffè (!!) coffee
università (!) university

then you can find a lot of words less valuable: proprietà, umidità, radioattività, libertà, eredità, fiscalità, città... and so on.

Unfortunately, they didn't auction the most valuable words, so only the ones with extremely fast registration systems registered them.

Upon me, casinò.it is extremely valuable, I think more than 1 million euro, and someone registered it for 5 euros, more or less.
