According to this article [telecomasia.net] Network Solutions is about to luanch the registration of Thai domains in native language through three local ISPs. It is reported that these names will become internationally recognised.

One very interesting sentence states "NSI has also launched, or is planning to launch, native language domain name registration services in eight other countries, including China, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Sri Lanka and Vietnam."

There is obviously a lot of interest in native language domains with some of the countries named above being thought logical contenders. Myanmar (Burma) tweaks my curiosity though as according to my research there is practically nothing on the net using the Myanmar domain (.mm). Mind you, with a cctld like that I am surprised it wasn't ransacked a couple of years ago. Still, I digress.

There is some more in depth info about the new Thai domains names here [nationmultimedia.com].

In Asia, Chang said Korea leads the way with 400,000 to 500,000 domain name registrations followed by Japan with 180,000 to 200,000 registrations.

The commencement of Thai-language domain names, Chang said will undoubtedly bring on a rush of new registrations.
