Updates on IDN registrations

0 min read

From the 21st of November 2018, all registration orders of Internationalised Domain Names (IDNs, domain names containing characters other than a-z and digits) within the CentralNic platform (find the full list further down) will require explicit definition of the IDN script used. This change is being made to address an edge case in the registration of internationalised domains that are syntactically valid in two or more different IDN tables, but which may not be valid for registration in one of those tables due to language-specific rules about variants. In such cases, it is necessary to know which table the domain should be associated with at the point of registration.

More IDN news: from the 12th of November 2018, the Afilias-run extensions .me, .onl and .rich will support all languages that Afilias already supports for .info and other extensions. This includes most European languages, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic and more.
