The complete multilingual Character Database has been assembled and provided by Unicode. The Unicode Database is
currently composed of over 65,000 Characters, and allows the global Internet user to access the Internet no matter what
their platform; no matter what their software; no matter what their language.
While your current company DOT COM Domain name is registered with VeriSign -- it is most likely NOT registered in all other languages.
ICANN and VeriSign clearly state that no Domain names registered in the English language will be protected from others
registering their name in another language. It is the responsibility of each company to protect its name in all other languages.
Additionally, your current Domain name is only registered in the Latin-1 character-set. Global Internet users not using the Latin-1 character
set will NOT be able to directly access your web site;
When you attempt register your Company Domain name in other languages, your name may already be taken.
Symbol Domain Solution
Instead of confronting the multilingual problem head-on, such as registering your Company Domain name in every language possible,
and hoping that everything works out, why not choose a Character Symbol Domain that is common to all languages?
For example, all Greek letters and Mathematical Symbols are common to all languages -- they are not language specific.
Likewise, the Dingbat Symbols, which is included in the Unicode Database, is also Universal and not specific to any single language.
Please note that the Symbol Domain names we offer are not language specific, and thus are not subject to the newly presented multilingual problems.
You don't have to change your current Domain
It's a simple matter to stack Domain names, such that anyone entering different IP's can arrive at the same Web location.
It is also a simple matter to detect the user's Browser and direct them to either the Symbol Domain or to your conventional Domain
if their Browser is not capable of showing Symbol URL's correctly.
In either event, the point is that you can, and should, have several Domain names to cover as many different avenues of access as possible --
the most important one being that of providing Global access.
In short, we are offering Unique single Character Symbol Domain names which are: non-language specific; easily for customers to
recognize and remember; and can be used to promote a truly Global presence on the Net.
