Interruption TAS - Mise à jour (7 mai 2012)

Déclaration d'Akram Atallah, Directeur d'exploitation

Cette page est disponible en:

En reconnaissance de la gêne occasionnée par la suspension temporaire du système de candidature TLD, l'ICANN offrira le remboursement complet des frais de candidature payés par tout candidat aux nouveaux gTLD qui souhaite retirer sa candidature avant la publication de la liste des noms des nouveaux domaines de premier niveau dont a été présenté la candidature.

Une résolution autorisant un remboursement complet a été adoptée lors de l'atelier du CA à Amsterdam, le dimanche 6 mai 2012.

Nous reconnaissons que cela représente une augmentation de seulement 5000 $ US du remboursement que les candidats recevraient autrement, mais nous croyons qu'il est une partie importante de l'accomplissement de notre engagement à traiter les candidats de façon équitable.

Nous regrettons les difficultés que la suspension temporaire du TAS cause.

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."
