Поздравление от директора регистратуры Japan Registry Services (JPRS) национального домена Японии .JP Хирофуми Хотта
Dear Mr. Andrey Vorobyev, CEO and Ms. Victoria Bunchuk,
This is Hiro Hotta from .jp registry - JPRS.
Please accept my sincere congratulations for your 10 years'
history and its fabulous success in Russian IDN ccTLD.
I am one of the leaders of IDNs in Japan and Chair of Root Zone LGR project for Japanese language. Japan has never seen a big success in IDNs, though.
I was one of the initial promoters of IDN Fast Track. In 2007, APTLD discussed energetically about IDN and decided to advocate "early adoption of IDN ccTLDs". APTLD brought its intention to CENTR, resulting in CENTR's agreement to go forward hand in hand.
After that, ICANN community started to discuss about "IDN Fast Track" process, and finally such process was placed in October 2009. Soon after that, Russian IDN ccTLD has launched and has become one of the champions of IDN ccTLDs in implementation, services, and marketing.
I believe your further success will lead the global community to more multilingual Internet.
Hiro Hotta, JPRS
