What are IDN’s?
The term IDN refers to “Internationalized domain names” which were introduced on DNS in 2003. Due to many technical and cultural adoption hurdles, their usage has been quite limited, leading to many non-english speakers adapting to phonetic english for their websites, emails and their general online Identity, despite a large increase in native language internet usage. Handshake allows anyone to register TLD’s and subdomains under them, whilst ICANN requires an application to register a new Top level domain, which costs $185,000 USD. With Handshake, anyone can own their identity, no matter the language.
