EuroDNS is proud to announce the opening of the .LU Internationalised Domain Names (IDNs) Sunrise period, starting today until March 31st.
The sunrise is open to all registrants who already own a .LU domain name. The IDNs give companies and individuals based in the European Union the chance to register domain names that contain non-Latin characters under the .LU domain.
As of today, domain name holders established outside Luxembourg no longer need to give valid power of attorney to an agent established in Luxembourg for the registration and the management of their domain names.
Xavier Buck, CEO of EuroDNS explains, “2010 is truly the year of the IDNs and we are proud to be part the .LU IDN Sunrise period. In order to secure your domain name, it is important you register it today. As Luxembourg has 3 main languages, Luxembourgish, French and German, this is a great opportunity. Don’t miss this chance to have your .LU written in your own language and alphabet. Removal of the local presence will make registrations easier and open the .LU space to all ”.
There are a number of restrictions in registering a .LU IDN. The domain names eligible during the Sunrise period are those derived from an existing domain name by replacing one or more characters with the same base character with a diacritic, or by applying the general replacement convention (ie: ü=ue). Besides, .LU IDN can only be registered during the Sunrise by the same holder of the similar .LU domain name.
The opening of the .LU IDN follows the recent launch of .PL, .EU, .DE, .COM and .NET IDNs.
