This facilitates an open standard for internationalised domain names (iDN) technology, which would allow all domain names to be written in local language character sets and scripts.
i-DNS is backed by US-based General Atlantic Partners LLC. The internationalised domain names system (i-DNS) is fully compatible with commonly used internet browsers and interoperable with the current domain name system (DNS).
Fred Baker, chairman of the internet engineering task force (IETF) said, "The phenomenal success of the internet can be attributed to the open culture, and in particular the open standards promulgulated within the IETF."
"It is very important that internationalised domain names adhere to similar standards so that we minimise the risk of unintentional freagmentation. We are pleased to note the adherence, participation and support of this proven process by i-DNS.net."
