Latin equivalence?[edit]

Something the article doesn't indicate is if the internationalized TLD is equivalent to the Latin TLD. eg: ‏مصر.‎, being functionally the same as .eg, or whether the same domain in both can be owned by different parties. Sounds like a confusing mess to me, that'll hurt the internet more than it helps. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.53.168.233 (talk) 20:18, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Not very helpful[edit]

This article states historical facts, but is not useful.

For instance, - how does one recognize an internationalized country code? - where is the list which can be used to decode such a code? - how can one type such a code with a "standard" (Latin) keyboard? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.170.243.158 (talk) 06:09, 8 May 2010 (UTC)


It will get there. For now, consider reading Punycode. Fwiiw, I think this is all gimmick and does more harm than good. --92.106.52.39 (talk) 09:27, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Improved[edit]



I just cleared up some dodgey bracketing.

representing 11 languages?[edit]

In line with the subject it would make more sense to assume here 11-scripts/alphabets are used. However, the source indeed states "languages". Does anyone have the 11/21 languages involved to see what's right? L.tak (talk) 16:38, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

What about Greek alphabet.[edit]

Is it there yet? [Any Sources supporting it?] --62.1.57.132 (talk) 17:40, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Citation needed?[edit]

The sentence "Currently Russia uses .ru, which in Cyrillic transliterates as "ру", which is confusingly similar to .py, the TLD of Paraguay" is followed by a "Citation needed". Why? The similarity between "py" and "ру" should be obvious, and the transliteration is evident to anyone who consults a list of the Russian alphabet.

So what kind of citation is required?--Oz1cz (talk) 21:24, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

It's not the ru/py part that needed citing, strictly speaking, but the assertion that it's confusing. I found a ref, in any case. —Korath (Talk) 23:18, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
I moved the paragraph to .рф. HaŋaRoa (talk) 15:56, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Transliterations[edit]

Would someone please add the (approximate) transliterations for the Arabic scripts? One is presently listed for Egypt, but this would be better placed at the first occurrence. Thank-you, Colin MacLaurin (talk) 01:45, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Greece[edit]

Why has Greece currently no internationalized country code top-level domain? --84.61.186.139 (talk) 18:27, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Use of International TLDs in a country article[edit]

Hello,

There is currently a debate on whether International TLDs should or should not be included in the article of Singapore. Anyone is free to join the discussion. --RaviC (talk) 21:48, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

  • First off, it is not a debate when we are discussing things on the discussion page and the relevancy of it, unless you are out to make it into a debate. Please get your facts right. --Dave ♠♣♥♦™№1185©♪♫® 22:20, 4 May 2011 (UTC)
