> following is some excerpts of the announcement --->
> Dear Valued Customers,
> We are proud to announce that .my DOMAIN REGISTRY now supports
> Internationalized Domain Name (IDN).
> An IDN (also known as multilingual domain name) is a domain name that
> contains Unicode characters other than the basic 37 ASCII characters
> permitted to-date (a-z , 0-9 and -).  In other words, an IDN may contain
> letters with diacritics (for example, façade) as required by many European
> languages or characters drawn from non-Latin scripts such as Jawi / Arabic,
> Chinese or Tamil.
> Many countries have started to offer domain names in their local scripts to
> allow more of their population access the Internet.  Amongst the first few
> countries to deploy top level IDN are Egypt (مصر ), Saudi Arabia (السعودية )
> and United Arab Emirates (امارات ) – all on the 5th May 2010. Even two of
> our neighboring countries, Thailand and Singapore, have implemented IDN.
> For Malaysia, we have decided to offer 2nd Level IDNs, starting with Jawi
> (for example, مليسيا.my).  Chinese and Tamil IDNs are also in the pipeline
> and will be implemented progressively.  For Jawi IDNs, the roll out will be
> in 3 phases.  In the first phase, registration of Jawi IDNs is specifically
> for government agencies and government educational entities.  Registrations
> start from 24th January 2011 until 30th April 2011.  The first phase Jawi
> IDNs will be free of charge for one year.  Government agencies and
> government educational entities are encouraged to secure their Jawi IDNs as
> soon as possible.
> Existing .my customers will enjoy Jawi IDNs in the second phase, and in the
> third phase, Jawi IDNs will be opened to the public. Do keep an eye open for
> the announcements on the second and third phase roll out to secure your own
> Jawi IDN!
> For more information about IDN, do visit our FAQ page
> at http://www.domainregistry.my/faq.php?id=98.
