Afilias Offers .INFO Domains in Spanish

by Chad Kettner in Categories: Registries

Afilias, a worldwide provider of registry services, announced that they will now offer .INFO domains with Spanish characters (á, é, í, ñ, ó, ú, and ü). This announcement only solidifies the importance of including Spanish-friendly registry services, as Spanish is the third most popular language on the internet.

“With over 100 million Spanish-speaking Internet users today, 13 million of which are in the United States alone, we believe that the introduction of Spanish IDNs represents an important addition for .INFO and for the growing base of Spanish-speaking users on the internet,� said Roland LaPlante, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Afilias. “As the only truly global Internet extension, .INFO Web sites are a natural way for individuals, organizations, and institutions to convey information in their local, native Spanish language.�

.INFO has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to accepting standards-compliant registrations and Afilias has helped to pave the way for a much more intimate experience for internet users that prefer to use their own language.

By adding these characters to their offering, Afilias has allowed Spanish-speakers to establish websites using words that are commonly used in their language, such as pelí, telé, Piñ, and others.

Afilias now offers ten different languages including Spanish, German, Polish, Swedish, Danish, Hungarian, Icelandic, Latvian, Lithuanian, and Korean.

Im sorry but this is a waist of time. The only good domains are those containing letter Ñ.
