IDNA2008 non-conform domain names to phase out on 6 May 2016
We would like to remind all interested parties that with the introduction of IDNA2008 in 2015, EURid is no longer supporting the following characters:
- hyphens in the second, third and fourth position
- “ŀ” (L followed by middle dot but not followed by a subsequent L)
- "ı" (dotless i)
Therefore, as announced by email, newsletters and ad-hoc communications, domain names containing the aforementioned characters will be phased out as of 6 May 2016. All affected registrants and their registrars have already been notified of this change. Should you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].
