Introduction of IDNs at eu-domains at the end of 2009

The implementation of IDNs at eu-domains will support all characters of all the 23 official EU languages.

(PresseBox) (Koeln, ) EURID-Registrar Secura has announced today, that the company will accept the pre-registration of IDNs at .eu since today.

EURID has decided to introduce soon IDNs. The date of introducing the IDNs at eu-domains shall be the end of 2009.

Internationalised Domain Names (IDNs) are domain names that may contain non-ASCII characters. An example for a special character is e.g. è. These special characters include letters with accents and characters in non-Latin languages such as Greek, for example.

The public policy rules for eu-domains states, "The Registry shall perform the registration of domain names in all the alphabetic characters of the official languages when adequate international standards become available."

The implementation of IDNs at eu-domains will support all characters of all the 23 official EU languages.

A sunrise phase in order to protect the holders of trade marks is not forseen by EURID. Therefore everybody competes for the best names. And therefore,it is important to select a small EURID-Member like Secura (domainregistry.de/eu.html) with a small queue and with sucess rates of more the 90 percent at the introduction of the new pro-and tel-domains
