Afilias' specialized technology makes Internet addresses more accessible and useful through a wide range of applications, including Internet domain registry services, Managed DNS and award-winning mobile Web services.
Afilias执行副总裁兼首席技术官Ram Mohan表示：“鉴于Afilias的业务遍布全球，我们一直对国际化域名（非正式简称为IDN）抱有强烈兴趣。我们是首家推出IDN电子邮件的公司, 并且相信让全球人口最多的且中文是首要语言的国家使用.INFO对应词的全中文域名将有益于所有中国互联网用户。”
Afilias高级副总裁兼首席营销官Roland LaPlante表示：“ICANN仅在2012年1月12日至2012年4月12日期间接受gTLD申请，而且之后可能还要再过几年才能再次接受gTLD IDN版本的申请，我们很高兴能够率先推广IDN的使用与部署。”
Afilias is the world's largest provider of domain registry services, supporting more than 20 million registrations across 16 different TLDs, six of which are new TLDs under contract with ICANN! In fact, Afilias has more new TLD registrations than all other registry services providers combined.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Number(ICANN), the global body which manages Internet names and numbers, will soon unleash new generic Top Level Domains (gTLD). These new gTLDs are designed to increase choice and competition for all Internet users. Soon, one can apply for the name of one's company such as .tata, .reliance or .sony or for a city name, such as .kolkata , .delhi and .mumbai. Rod Beckstrom, CEO and President of ICANN will share ICANN's perspective on the new gTLD program.
