Currently, over 50% of the 1.6 billion people use the Internet to Latin. They have their own name in the language of his country, but the domain name registration and e-mail address, they must move them into English.
Last weekend, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the birth Internet, organizing international domain names ICANN approved plans to deploy non-Latin domain names in mid 2010. These are called IDN domain - "international domains goods "(internationalized domain names).
IDN has been discussed for many years but now beginning to realize whether there exist many problems. For example, in addition to security risks, users also wonder if they can knock internationalized domain names if the keyboard does not support non-Latin characters, or to download a virtual keyboard. Logically, the PC manufacturer can not provide both keyboard ABC alphabet, containing both the character of the Japanese, Russian, Arabic, Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew ...
ICANN IDN introduce the role of the 7-minute video in which people in countries around the world to help them assert IDN "localize" the keyboard and e-mail addresses, without being "forced" depends in English as well.
