  IDNs: WEB ADDRESSES IN YOUR PREFERRED LANGUAGE TODAY
Internationalized Domain Names (IDN) are domain names or Web addresses, represented by local language characters. The local language domain name is followed by .com or .net. IDNs are available in more than 39 scripts so registrants can register names in more than 350 languages. From Korean to Greek, Russian to Chinese, domain names are now truly global!

Requires128bit SSL Browser. IE6, Netscape 4.5, Mozilla 1.1 or higher.

VeriSign® Global Registry Services (GRS) offers IDNs for .COM and .NET as a part of the IDN Testbed through IDN certified registrars like us. With over a million domain names currently in the IDN testbed, VeriSign is pleased to announce their plans to improve the user experience with IDNs through a complementary set of solutions: the i-Nav(tm) plug-in and Web-based navigation system.
The i-Nav plug-in is available now; for more information visit www.idnnow.com.

  How To Register an IDN
Registration of IDNs happens in the nearly the same way as registration for any other type of domain name:

  1. Choose your IDN.
    You will need to know the specific characters for the language in which you want to register your IDN. Search your desired IDN to check its availability.
  2. Provide some basic information.
    Register your IDN online. This requies information such as your name, mailing address and e-mail address.
  3. Pay the fee.
    We accept online credit and debit card payments.
  4. Congratulations! You now have registered an IDN.
    Use our bundled web forwarding service to connect your new IDN with your web page (web hosting space not included with IDN).

  IDNs Exist In A Testbed Environment

VeriSign® Global Registry Services (GRS) offers IDNs as a part of their IDN Testbed. With over a million domain names currently in the IDN testbed, VeriSign has announced plans to improve the user experience with IDNs through a complementary set of solutions: the i-Nav(tm) plug-in and Web-based navigation system. The i-Nav plug-in is available now; for more information visit www.idnnow.com.

VeriSign opened the Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) Testbed in November 2000 for the purpose of testing proposed standards for the deployment of IDN technology and to provide operational experience with those proposed standards.

The VeriSign® Global Registry Services IDN Testbed contributes to the work of the IDN Working Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). This working group's goal is to specify the requirements for access to domain names in non-English characters and to specify a protocol based on those requirements. Beyond contributing to the standards process, VeriSign feels it is incumbent upon them, as the keeper of the definitive database of names in the .com and .net domains, to catalyze efforts to make these domains available to a wider Internet community. By expanding the character capabilities of the Domain Name System, VeriSign can help open the door to Internet and e-commerce opportunities for millions of people.

When you register a domain name in the IDN Testbed, you become a participant in this important step to "globalize" the Internet.

It is important to recognize that IDN registrations exist in a VeriSign testbed environment. The IDN Working Group's effort towards creating standards for IDNs is not yet complete. Therefore, future revisions to the Internet draft documents may result in modification to the internal representation of domain names in the Testbed. Changes to the Internet draft documents during the Testbed could even result in some IDNs becoming invalid as they contain illegal characters. VeriSign will make every feasible effort to keep all registrations valid through the testbed period, but no guarantees can be made.
