Now Youcan have your own domain name with you script. So in addition to .com, .cn, .de and all the other generic and country code domains, now we're going to have those with any kind of characters in any kind of script you can imagine. ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers is making good on its talk, formally approving these International Domain Names (IDN) for use as country-code top level domains (ccTLDs.

That just a great think. I hope it will improve Internet more. And even ever country should have right to use own language as a domain name,

It's nice to be able to get a domain with any extention we want but I have gotten to the point where it's almost automatic to type .com at the end of a domain. I have a .ca for one of my domains and I am forever typing .com on the end and then it's DOH and I have to fix it. I don't think I have made any errors so far linking to my new domain, at least I hope I haven't.

This is good news to everybody,so inshort anybody can make his/her own name as a domain name unlike before we have to sticked with our sub domain name. Thats cool, but i think there is disadvantages to this. This will mess the whole internet network in general.
