Why multilingual domain names
Since the beginning of the Internet, the domain name system (DNS) has only
allowed Internet addresses based on English characters. Recent research,
indicates that 50% of current Internet users speak English
and by 2005 (est.) only one-third of users will use English for
In recognition of this need for multilingual domain names, Verisign GRS
has announced a testbed for Internationalised Domain Name registrations.
The test bed is designed to allow registration of ASCII-encoded multilingual
domain names using the Registry Registrar Protocol (RRP). Multilingual
domain names can be registered as second level domains under .com, .net
or .org. The multilingual domain names will be stored using Row-based
ASCII-Compatible Encoding (referred to as RACE) in the Verisign GRS.
Via Melbourne IT,
and other multilingual partners, including ChinaDNS, CNNIC and i-DNS, DomainAvenue.com accepted participation
and successfully developed a multilingual client to convert a native
language domain into an acceptable string that can be processed and stored
by the Verisign GRS. In this regard, on October 20, 2000, Melbourne IT
successfully completed the Multilingual Certification Evaluation for each
of the above new languages in which we intend to register names.
DomainAvenue.com has now progressed to prepare the registration system
to offer these languages for multilingual domain names to Business Partners
and is also working closely with Melbourne IT and Verisign GRS to incorporate
RRP 1.2.0 commands.
Resolving ML.com domain names
Resolution is a process by which a domain name is translated into an IP
address, allowing Internet users to access Web sites. Multilingual names
are now resolvable on a test-basis and during a next phase, Verisign GRS
will include the multilingual domain names in the Top Level Domain Zone
files so that they can be normally resolved by the Internet's DNS
infrastructure. It should be noted that resolution of names would occur
in a phased approach to allow for sufficient testing of the process.
