Multilingual Domains
Multilingual Domains-[Return]

A multilingual domain name is a domain that uses non-English language characters. Examples are Chinese, Japanese, Cyrillic, Spanish, Portuguese, etc.

Verisign GRS divided the ML Resolution into 3 phrases as follows:
1. Phase 1 - Beginning January 2001: Users can access a default web page by typing a multilingual domain name into their browser using a special format, known as ASCII Compatible Encoding (ACE). Access is controlled via second level domain space (i.e. mltbd.com, mltbd.net, mltbd.org).
2. Phase 2 - Beginning February 2001: Users will have the ability to resolve the multilingual domain name (ACE format) into a website maintained by the registrant. Access is controlled via second level domain space (i.e. mltbd.com, mltbd.net, mltbd.org).
3. Phase 3 - Beginning March or early April 2001: Multilingual domain names (ACE format) introduced into the production name servers for the .com, .net, & .org top level domains.
Resolution in the ACE format is not user friendly, Verisign Global Registry will be making available software applications which transform an ACE format string into the native domain name.

Currently, the root server does not support extensions (.com/net/org) in non-English characters. The systems used for core Internet functions around the world still require English-based character sets.

There are millions of people in countries that would like to use their native languages to enter web addresses. By registering your domain in those character sets you are making your site more accessible to them as well as protecting your English character domains from being registered by someone else.

No. It must be registered in each new language if you wish to protect it.

We suggest you register separately in each language you wish to have a domain name in. In other words, registering in one language, does not protect you in the other languages.

The WHOIS database run by Verisign GRS will be updated at a later date. Currently it only supports English characters. However, in the meantime multilingual domains will appear in the WHOIS database by their RACE-encoded name.

RACE Encoding is the system used to translate languages into a common format that is easier for computers to store. It is represented as a string of numbers, letters, and dashes. All multilingual domains will be stored in this format for use in Internet computers and systems.

There are no restrictions on registering a domain name in another character set. As long as the name is determined to be available,it is eligible to be registered. Please keep in mind, however, that we make no representations as to whether or not domain names searched for through our site infringe upon or violate any trademark or intellectual property rights; it is your responsibility to determine the legality of the domain name.

Currently, typing an international character domain name into an Internet browser will result in an error message stating that 'The Page Cannot Be Displayed'. However, as the central registry updates its systems to accommodate these names, you will be able to view them on the Internet.

Currently, international character domain names will not resolve (point to) a web site in the same way that an English character domain name will. As the central registry updates its systems to accommodate international character domain names, you will be able to point them to your web site, as well as use them for other services.
