ICANN created an experimental set of top-level internationalized domain names in October 2007 for the purpose of testing the use of Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications (IDNA) in the root zone and within those domains. These testing domains were abolished on 31 October 2013.[1] Each of these TLDs encoded a word meaning "test" in the respective language.[2][3]

Each of these domains contained only one site with the word "example" encoded in the respective script and language. These example.test sites were test wikis used by ICANN.
