According to Associated Press, ICANN is inching closer to offering complete native-language domain names.
Now what does this mean?
There are two ways to offer an “internationalized” domain name.
The easy way, which is now available commercially, is to offer a non-Latin domain but continue to the use the traditional top level domain, such as .com or .org.
So what you end up with a mixture of Latin and non-Latin characters.
The better and much more complex internationalized domain is one that supports the native script across the full domain, including the top-level domain.
