Change of Service Migration Schedule for Japanese JP Domain Name in compliance with RFCs
On March 7, JPRS had announced the service schedule of Japanese JP Domain Name in compliance with RFCs, according to the publication of the RFCs. Subsequently, in consideration of ICANN's release of a document "Standards for ICANN Authorization of Internationalized Domain Name Registrations in Registries with Agreements" on March 13 (US time), JPRS determined that it would reschedule the migration as after the discussion of the above document with other registries and ICANN.
We recognize that the ICANN document is the recommendation of the framework for global implementation of Internationalized Domain Name. The content of the document follows the discussion which JPRS has participated in, and conforms to our planned RFC-based service.
Therefore, JPRS decided that RFC-based Japanese JP Domain Name would better be proceeded by following the proposed procedure. This decision will help all ccTLDs and gTLDs to operate Internationalized Domain Name in the uniform framework throughout the world. JPRS aims to make Japanese JP Domain Name be an good example for the framework.
JPRS hopes that such a procedure on Japanese JP Domain Name will be promptly proceeded after ICANN Meetings in Rio de Janeiro. JPRS will thereafter announce the schedule again to Internet community.
