  • 他们强调了全球互联网一致运营的重要性,并警告应反对互联网在国家层面上出现的分离化。他们对近期普遍出现的监督和管制对全球互联网用户的信任和信心的践踏表示由衷地担忧。

  • 他们确认需要继续应对互联网治理的挑战,并同意促进社群的共同努力来进一步推进全球多利益主体互联网合作的演进。

  • 他们号召加快互联网名称与数字地址分配机构(ICANN)和互联网号码分配机构(IANA)的国际化进程,将其建设成为所有利益主体,包括各国政府,均能平等参与的平台。

  • 他们还号召将向IPv6的转型设为全球首要任务。特别地,互联网内容提供商必须能够同时提供适用于IPv4和IPv6服务的内容,从而使得这些内容能够在全球互联网的范围内得到访问。

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"""" is not an IDN."
