The IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process was successfully launched, as planned on 16 November 2009. It was done at exactly 00:00UTC with a very joyful count-down by the Fast Track Staff Team – followed by a wooohooo
The launch went smoothly. We have since monitored the system and everything is working.
As of 10pm Pacific time (15 November 2009) we have received:
– 6 requests from countries/territories
– representing 3 different languages
Following the IDN ccTLD Fast Track Final Implementation Plan, no additional details will be reported by ICANN – that is, until requests has been successfully processed.
That said, we will be providing additional stats (as the above) updates in regular time intervals.
No countries or territories has reported problems using the system, at this time.
All details for participants and access to the system is available directly from http://www.icann.org or directly at: http://icann.org/en/topics/idn/fast-track/
Inquiries for the system are to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
A quick note to participants:
When uploading supporting material, please note that each file must be limited to 10MB. If you have larger files, please indicate that in the text box provided, and send the files to email@example.com We will try to find a better solution to this soon.
We are very much looking forward to receiving additional requests and processing everything, to make IDN ccTLDs a reality for Internet users around the world!
