The .LU registry announced the launch of Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs).
The IDN launch will commence with a Sunrise Period (1 February 2010 - 31 March 31, 2010).
During this period only owners of already registered ASCII .LU domain names will be able to register their respective IDNs.
On 1 April 2010 IDNs will be registered on a "first-come, first-served" basis.
The .LU the registry will, from 1 February 2010, remove the local presence requirement, which means domain name registrants no longer have to appoint a local Luxembourg contact in order to register a .LU domain name.
