The Domain Name System (DNS) has changed dramatically over the last decade.
There are now more than 1,200 active generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)
representing many different scripts and character strings of varying length
(e.g., .дети, .london, .engineering). There are also more than 60
Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) country code top-level domains
(ccTLDs) representing global communities online in native scripts (e.g., .

Universal Acceptance (UA) is the cornerstone to a digitally inclusive
Internet because it ensures all domain names and email addresses – in any
language, script, or new or extended TLD (e.g., .在线, .photography) – are
accepted equally by all Internet-enabled applications, devices, and systems.

Achieving UA ensures every person can navigate and communicate on the
Internet using their chosen domain names and email addresses that best
aligns with users’ interests, business, culture, language, and script.

Most of the world does not speak English as a first language or write it
only using letters A-Z, a-z. Only around 36 percent of the world population
uses the Latin alphabet. Billions of people prefer to read and write in
Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic, Devanagari, or other scripts. Many of these
multilingual users are currently excluded from experiencing the full
benefits of the Internet simply because they cannot use a domain name or
email address in their language and script of choice.

The training is mainly geared to the following audience, but anyone
interested can participate:

   - System developers
         - Email system administrators
         - Software and application developers
         - Technical managers
         - University professors and students studying computer or social
         sciences and business) – in particular, those interested in Internet
         - Chief technology officers
         - Internet-based startups
         - App developers
         - Network managers
         - Internet service providers
         - Anyone interested in learning more about the use and acceptance
         of new top-level domains

The training is open to the general public, so feel free to forward this
message to your co-workers, friends, and family.


Happy Holidays!
