The INTERFAX site has a Russian name now.
Latin letters in the addresses of Russian-language Internet resources are not needed any more.

Russia, INTERFAX, 18 May 2001 -- The multilingual Internet technology promoted by the company i-DNS.net International has reached Russia. On May 22, the site of , an official registrar of i-DNS.net, will start to register domain names completely spelt in Russian letters only.

From now on, we can use Russian domain names like , and . They are already available, and visibly demonstrate the efficiency of this technology.

The company of Hong Kong intends to start in a short time registration services for full-Russian domain names on the Internet.

As told to Interfax by the company’s vice-president Alexey Sozonov, the names in question are those in the domains of , and .

According to Mr. Sozonov, the registration will use the internationally recognized technology developed by the i- DNS.net International. The technology known as Internationalized Domain Name System (i-DNS) now supports multi-language Internet addresses in nearly 60 languages. This novelty will enable Internet users to register their addresses using characters from the Cyrillic alphabet ending in the combinations for business entities, , for Internet providers, and , for organizations.

“What’s especially important,” notes A. Sozonov, “unlike previously applied similar technologies, ours does not use Latin symbols at all; moreover, it is already in operation, while systems using combined approaches (with both Russian and Latin letters) are still in the phase of being developed.”

He believes that the development of multi-language Internet addresses will solve several problems at once.

“First, Russian users will feel easier navigating on the Internet; next, Russian-language resource owners will not have to invent names for their sites – until now, such names were written in Latin characters and often looked, and sounded, strange and hard to understand. Thirdly, sites will be easier to search for and to advertise, because from now on, the site names or email address names will be identical in writing and pronounciation,” the expert explains.
