Verisign working to fix Hebrew IDN error

Company wants to fix error in one of its new top level domain applications.

Verisign has responded to Domain Name Wire’s inquiry regarding an error in its application for a Hebrew internationalized domain name (IDN) for a transliteration of .com:

Verisign is aware of the administrative error that resulted in the inclusion of a variant character in the Verisign Sàrl application for the Hebrew transliteration of .com and is working with ICANN to address the error.

ICANN is currently working on guidelines for when and how a new TLD applicant can change its final application.

I’m currently working to fix a UTF8 problem on Domain Name Wire. When that’s finished I’ll post thoughts from the IDN community about VeriSign’s selection of .com and .net transliterations.
