Internet names: a matter for both government and private
The Working Group of the Plenary approved a resolution on
the management of internationalized multilingual domain
names. This resolution aims at helping promote the role of
Member States in the internationalization of domain names
and addresses of their respective languages. This will be
increasingly important in the coming years as a majority of
Internet users is expected to prefer to conduct online
activities in their own language. It is also important
because the current Domain Names System (DNS) mapping does
not reflect the growing language needs of all. The
resolution stresses that the registration and allocation of
Internet domain names and addresses should reflect the
geographical and functional nature of the Internet with an
equitable balance of interests of all stakeholders. It also
emphasizes that the non-discriminatory access to Internet
domain names and addresses, and more generally to the
Internet, should be available to all citizens and that the
management of Internet Domain Names and addresses is of
concern to both governments and the private sector. It also
reiterates the need to fully maintain country code
numbering plans and addresses as in ITU-T recommendation
E.164 which defines the international public
telecommunication numbering plan. Under this resolution,
ITU will be providing assistance to its Member States to
promote the use of their languages for domain names and
addresses and will cooperate with the World Intellectual
Property Organization whose role includes protection
against misuse of intellectual property rights in the use
of countries’ languages for domain names and addresses.
