Nearly 8 years on dot Asia stumbles out of the starting blocks. That is a salutary lesson for anyone thing that we are about to be spammed by a slew of new IDN registries.

"Lesley Cowley, chief executive of .uk registry Nominet, said regional domains could prove to be a good option because many nations imposed stringent conditions on anyone wanting to register and use country code addresses.
