i-DNS to provide technology for multilingual domain names

Online, itdaily.com, 25 August 2000 -- Internationalised Domain Name System (i-DNS.net) has announced an agreement to provide key multilingual enabling technology to the Network Solutions Registry (NSI Registry), an Internet locator service, to enable domain names to be registered and used in major non-English languages.

NSI has more than 19 million names registered to date. i-DNS.net is the first multilingual Internet technology provider to enable popular .com, .net and .org domain names to be registered in non-English languages.

Backed by US-based General Atlantic Partners LLC, it has developed a flexible Unicode-based technology that supports Row-based ASCII Compatible Encoding (RACE), UTF-5, UTF-8 and all common local encoding.

It is fully compatible with commonly used Internet browsers and inter-operable with the current Domain Name System (DNS).

In the coming months, NSI Registry will open a test bed that will allow registration of multilingual domain names through the more than 60 active ICANN-accredited registrars.

Non-English Internet users currently comprise an estimated 40 per cent of Internet users worldwide. This is projected to increase to 60 per cent of Internet users worldwide by 2003.

i-DNS.net has already launched its service in many markets, including Singapore, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, Egypt, USA.
