World Report on Internationalised Domain Names

The Growth of IDNs and Enhancing Linguistic Diversity in Cyberspace

Each year, EURid, the manager for the .eu and .ею top-level domains, publishes the World Report on Internationalised Domain Names (IDN), authored by Oxford Information Labs. As we look toward the 2017 report to be published later this year, we wanted to revisit some interesting findings from the 2016 report that are worth calling out. In particular, the latest report showed that IDNs (i.e., domain names in non-Latin based scripts) are growing at a rate of about 9 percent, significantly faster than the general growth of domain names.
