Interruption TAS - Mise à jour (4 mai 2012)

Déclaration d'Akram Atallah, directeur d'exploitation

Cette page est disponible en:

Le système de candidature TLD, ou TAS, contenait 2091 candidatures - soumises ou en cours - lorsqu'il a été mis hors ligne le 12 avril 2012.

En outre, il y a 214 candidatures potentielles qui ont été enregistrées avant la date limite du 29 mars, mais dont les paiements n'ont pas encore été reçus ou réconciliés.

L'ICANN a reçu environ 350 millions de dollars américains de frais pour les candidatures des nouveaux gTLD.

Comme nous l'avons signalé, nous sommes en train de notifier les candidats pour les informer s'ils ont été touchés par la panne de logiciel et nous avons intention d'achever ce processus au plus tard le mardi 8 mai. Peu de temps après nous allons annoncer le calendrier de réouverture TAS et compléter la période de candidature. Une fois que le système est rouvert, il restera ouvert pendant au moins cinq jours ouvrables.

Nous vous remercions de votre compréhension pendant que nous travaillons pour mettre le système de candidature TLD en ligne.

Domain Name System
Internationalized Domain Name ,IDN,"IDNs are domain names that include characters used in the local representation of languages that are not written with the twenty-six letters of the basic Latin alphabet ""a-z"". An IDN can contain Latin letters with diacritical marks, as required by many European languages, or may consist of characters from non-Latin scripts such as Arabic or Chinese. Many languages also use other types of digits than the European ""0-9"". The basic Latin alphabet together with the European-Arabic digits are, for the purpose of domain names, termed ""ASCII characters"" (ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange). These are also included in the broader range of ""Unicode characters"" that provides the basis for IDNs. The ""hostname rule"" requires that all domain names of the type under consideration here are stored in the DNS using only the ASCII characters listed above, with the one further addition of the hyphen ""-"". The Unicode form of an IDN therefore requires special encoding before it is entered into the DNS. The following terminology is used when distinguishing between these forms: A domain name consists of a series of ""labels"" (separated by ""dots""). The ASCII form of an IDN label is termed an ""A-label"". All operations defined in the DNS protocol use A-labels exclusively. The Unicode form, which a user expects to be displayed, is termed a ""U-label"". The difference may be illustrated with the Hindi word for ""test"" — परीका — appearing here as a U-label would (in the Devanagari script). A special form of ""ASCII compatible encoding"" (abbreviated ACE) is applied to this to produce the corresponding A-label: xn--11b5bs1di. A domain name that only includes ASCII letters, digits, and hyphens is termed an ""LDH label"". Although the definitions of A-labels and LDH-labels overlap, a name consisting exclusively of LDH labels, such as""icann.org"" is not an IDN."
