Blacknight Support EU IDNs

Irish registrar Blacknight, leaders in domain space innovation have added EU IDNs to the domains they offer.

PRLog - Oct. 12, 2011 - CARLOW, Ireland -- Irish registrar Blacknight, leaders in domain space innovation have added EU IDNs to the domains they offer.

Introduced in 2010, an IDN or Internationalized Domain Name is a domain name in a language that does not contain ASCII characters. Internet users are now able to register IDNs in languages such as Chinese, Cyrillic, Hindi and Arabic.

The introduction of IDNs for the European Union have been particularly important as the 27 Member States of the EU have 23 official languages, many of which have non-ASCII characters in their alphabets. For The EU IDN, these characters include, for example, the Swedish å, the German ü, the Romanian ș and characters from the Bulgarian and Greek alphabets as a whole.
Any individual or organization based in the European Union is eligible to register a .eu IDN. Blacknight, evangelists for a more user friendly Internet, embrace EU IDNs and are pleased to offer them.
Michele Neylon of Blacknight says: “We are big supporters of IDNs. The Internet cannot be a great equalizer unless users are able to navigate it in their native languages. IDNs were a long time coming and now that they are here the domain registration numbers prove how sorely they were needed. “

Blacknight currently supports EU IDNs in .eu, .biz, .tel, .info and .org.

Neylon continues: “We cater to a largely European clientele so of course we offer EU IDNs.  We want our customers to be able to register domain names in their native languages without any ASCII work-arounds. Blacknight is passionate about fostering positive end user experiences and we feel that IDNs are another huge step in a more accessible Internet.”
