Interrupción del Sistema de Solicitudes de TLD (TAS) - Actualización (7 de mayo de 2012)

Declaración de Akram Atallah, Director de Operaciones (COO)

Esta página está disponible en:

En vista de los inconvenientes causados por la suspensión temporaria del sistema de solicitud de TLD, la ICANN proporcionará un reembolso completo de las tarifas de solicitud abonadas de cualquier solicitante de un nuevo gTLD que desee retirar su solicitud, con anterioridad a la publicación de la lista de nombres de dominio de alto nivel que hayan sido solicitados.

La Junta Directiva participó de un taller en Amsterdam el día domingo, 6 de mayo de 2012, durante la cual se adoptó una resolución que autoriza la realización de un reembolso completo.

Reconocemos que esto representa un aumento de tan solo US $5000 por encima del reembolso que los solicitantes que deseen retirarse recibirían, pero consideramos que ofrecer un trato justo a los solicitantes conforma una parte importante del cumplimiento de nuestro compromiso.

Lamentamos las dificultades que la suspensión temporaria del TAS está causando.

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."
