Hot on the heels of launching internationalised domain names in Scandinavian languages in January, .CO Internet has announced the launch of Asian IDNs including Chinese, Japanese and Korean on 15 April.
Registrations will be available in .co, .com.co, .net.co and .nom.co. For anyone wanting to protect trademarks, there will not be a formal trademark sunrise, landrush or grandfathering period for these three IDN languages.
Registrants wanting to protect trademarks and wishing to take proactive steps to protect those marks are urged you to contact their registrar or reseller as soon as possible.
Policies for Asian IDNs are available for download from x.co/asianidn.
