This standard makes it possible for compatible internet browsers to identify
domain names even without installing any additional plug-ins.
The registration of Internationalized Domain Names follows the
well proven scheme »first come, first served«.
Registering early helps to avoid problems
with popular domain names.

idea to register versions with and without hyphens.
This results in higher costs for the registration, of course,
but it helps to avoid the risk of much more expensive legal disputes.
