Macedonia gets an IDN: мкд

Lately I’ve been writing about all those new non-Latin generic TLDs.

But countries are still in the process of acquiring the local-script equivalents of their country codes.

Last week, Macedonia (.mk) recently received approval for its country code IDN: мкд.

Here it is on my freshly updated IDN map:

According to ICANN:

With this announcement, a total of 32 countries/territories requests have successfully passed through the String Evaluation. Of these, 26 countries/territories (represented by 36 IDN ccTLDs) are delegated in the DNS root zone; with the remainder either readying to apply, or actively applying for, delegation of the string.
