Proposed Implementation Plan for Synchronized IDN ccTLDs
ICANN is pleased to announce the public comment period for the proposed Implementation Plan for Synchronized IDN ccTLDs. Synchronized IDN ccTLDs are described by situations in the Fast Track Process where:
If approved by the ICANN Board, the proposed implementation plan and process will be available for IDN ccTLD requests for synchronized IDN ccTLDs that have completed the String Evaluation step in the Fast Track Process.
- IDN ccTLDs are requested in more than one official language or script in a country/territory,
- the requests for corresponding multiple strings are considered equivalent and delegation would solve a significant problem for Internet users, and
- users accessing domains under any of the equivalent IDN ccTLDs expect that such domains will resolve to the same address or value.
Following successful completion of the evaluation process, the requesters may initiate delegation of the synchronized IDN ccTLDs by following ICANN's standard processes for TLD delegation, through the IANA function.
