STERLING, Va., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NeuStar, Inc. (NYSE:NSR) today announced the launch of six internationalized domain names (IDNs) for the Finnish, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, and Portuguese languages in the .BIZ top-level Internet domain. Organizations around the world that do business in these languages are now better positioned to grow and gain competitive advantage.
NeuStar has been a pioneer in globalizing the Internet for non-English speakers. IDNs in the .BIZ domain enable companies and organizations worldwide to register domain names in their languages of choice. With the six languages released today, NeuStar currently offers IDN registrations in a total of 15 languages. .BIZ IDNs have been available in Korean since August 2007; in Chinese and Japanese since March 2007; in Spanish, Danish, Icelandic, Norwegian, and Swedish since November 2006; and in German since 2004.
".BIZ continues to set the standard for global top-level domains," said Richard Tindal, vice president of domain name registry services at NeuStar. "NeuStar recognizes that the ability for customers to conduct business online in their chosen language is a key driver of market demand for organizations globally. With the introduction of these new IDNs, NeuStar has taken the initiative to meet the demands of the global marketplace and ensure that .BIZ has a place in every international company's domain portfolio."
NeuStar's IDN offerings in .BIZ protect intellectual property rights and brand consistency through the bundling of like names. Further, NeuStar's solution reinforces the company's commitment to adhere to the recommendations put forth by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and similar organizations worldwide.
All IDN names in .BIZ can be registered in one- to 10-year increments, and will be available for immediate use on a "first come, first served" basis from accredited .BIZ registrars. IDNs in .BIZ work in all major Web browsers including Internet Explorer 7, Firefox and Safari.
