Bulgaria Applies For IDN Domain Extension
Bulgaria has entered an official application today to ICANN for the IDN extension .бг (.bg).
ICANN had raised the issue of IDN extensions at their recent Paris Conference, with a view to introducing a “limited number of non-contentious IDN ccTLDs, while an overall long-term IDN ccTLD policy is being developed” (DomainNews).
A representative of Bulgaria’s Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC) presented Paul Tumi, President of ICANN with their domain application in Paris. This follows reports that the Russian President is supporting the campaign in Russia for the .рф (.rf) domain name.
