Local language email addresses are inseparably linked with Internationalized Domain
Names (IDNs) and can currently be registered in these 15 languages according to .IN Registry, which is responsible for registering IDNs in India.
The actors abused Internationalized Domain
Names registration attempting to impersonate the official bitcoingold.org website using sender IDN domains and the decoded notations.
These Internationalized Domain
Names (IDN; icann.org/resources/pages/idn-2012-02-25-en) include Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Latin (with accent and diacritical marks), Japanese, and Tamil.
Over the next year, approximately 1,300 new domain names eventually will be introduced, including geographic names (e.g., .LONDON, .AMSTERDAM, .NYC); brands (e.g., .GOOGLE, .GRAINGER), industry classes (e.g., .BUILD, .LAW, .MED), sales and product channels (e.g., .SHOES, .SHOP, .STORE), generics (e.g., .GURU, .PAGE, .MENU), and internationalized domain
names (IDNs) in Chinese, Arabic and other languages (e.g., ..., Chinese for games, or..., Japanese for everyone).
On June 13, 2012, ICANN announced it had received 1,930 applications for new gTLDs, (48) including 66 geographic name applications and 116 Internationalized Domain
Names (IDNs) in scripts such as Chinese, Arabic, and Cyrillic.
The meeting, organised by the APTLD organisation in cooperation with the TRA, highlighted a range of issues related to the Universal Acceptance of the Internationalized Domain
Names (Internet domain names in characters other than the Latin characters), opportunities for the internationalised domain names and challenges.
Amongst the key considerations for the introduction of new top-level domains identified were: Expanding the domain name space to accommodate the introduction of both new ASCII and internationalized domain
name (IDN) top-level domains will give end users more choice about the nature of their presence on the Internet.
