According to information from VNNIC, the domain name (Internationalized Domain Name (IDN)) is the domain name written in the native languages ​​of countries around the globe. Multi-lingual domain names have been officially launched by the International Organization for Names and Numbers (ICANN) since April 2010 and have now become an indispensable development trend on the Internet, especially in countries that are not. Use of Latin characters such as Russian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Indian, etc .. Up to now, all browsers have supported IDN domain names, including Vietnamese domain names.

Because of Vietnamese language in Latin language, Viet Nam has not yet been assigned ICANN’s multi-national domain name (VietName).

Having gone through the development process with different stages, the Vietnamese domain name is actually operating on the Internet, giving users a lot of choices with the advantages of large and clear domain names. , Avoiding ambiguous understandings to help users identify and protect their trademarks exactly in Vietnamese language on the Internet.

According to Internet World Starts report, Asia-Pacific currently contributes more than half of the 3.7 billion users globally. Most of the billions of Internet users in the future will come from this area. The rapid expansion of the Internet in recent times has led to the need for DNS extensions.

The new phase of Internet activity

One of the key issues of IDN is that Vietnamese experts in the field of policy, technology and language should focus on and set up a committee for the creation of rules that create high-level domain names in Vietnamese. . Vietnam is represented by VNNIC who has participated in the Latin Initiative Board to ensure that the Vietnamese language is represented in the Latin IDN.

With the advantage of clear meaning, ensure pure information, avoid conflicts due to misunderstanding the domain name seal, TMTV is well received, registered widely since mid-2011. TMTV has achieved significant milestones and achieved 1 million in 2014.

According to VNNIC’s Internet resources report in 2016, more than half of Vietnamese enterprises own websites to sell online. By crossing the language barrier, Internet penetration may increase as more Vietnamese access the network in their native language.

Updating the system to keep up with the constantly changing DNS in order to accommodate new gTLD domains and IDNs is imperative for software designers and website owners. By ensuring software systems are updated to work with DNS, global online profit is projected to grow by $ 9.8 billion.

At present, domain name registrars “.vn” have simultaneously deployed domain name allocation in Vietnamese.Currently, beside the DOT VN registrars, five more domain name registrars have deployed services to register and maintain domain names in Vietnamese community. Thus, the system of domain name “.vn” registrars receives the dossier for registration of Vietnamese domain names, including:
