Millennium Inc. signs agreement with eNIC

To Register Any Domain Name

Los Angeles  July 17, 2000 -- Millennium Inc. has reached an agreement with to offer Domains including Spanish, French, Scandinavian and many other global languages and will be offering by the end of 2000 & .net domains. 

Further, arrangements have been previously made allowing Millennium Inc. to issue %100 Chinese Domain Names through affiliation with and many other options & extensions to be added soon. Other is in the works to facilitate global AnyDomainNameRegistration.

Previously, domain names could only be rendered in Roman or English characters. With multi-lingual domain names, each new registrant will be able to register and use a domain that better targets their web audience while preserving their linguistic roots and unique Net identity.

All this Multi-Lingual capability is provided by iDNS whose technology is built upon Unicode and currently supports more than 55 languages (including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian, Thai and Tamil) and their respective multiple encoding. It is fully compatible with commonly used Internet browsers and inter-operable with the current Domain Name System (DNS).

Although there are a large number of sites on the Web that cater to audiences in their native languages, all of them require that the domain name be an English language character set. This has forced some sites to use unconventional names to make them more familiar and easily remembered by their audience. For example, a few non-English Web sites use a string of numbers as their domain name because a number is easier for many non-English speaking people to remember than an unfamiliar English name.

Millennium Inc. will be offering ARABIC DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION in the last quarter of the year 2000 and this will facilitate the registration as    مقر.الموقع-العربي-المطلوب.ش  till there is a full standard approved by ICANN that might allow the use of  .شركة  instead of the currently approved  .ش .

Other Arabic Domain Name related issues will be discussed in UAE during GITEX 2000. Participation is highly encouraged.
