Universal Acceptance of Internet (commonly referred as ‘UA’)is a technical requirement that ensures all valid Domain Names and E-mail Addresses can be used by all Internet-enabled applications, devices, and systems. Way back in 1985, only six top-level domains (TLDs) were available, namely: .com, .org, .net, .edu, .gov, and .mil.The DNS (Domain Name System) has changed in recent years, not only with the introduction of longer generic TLDs, but with the agreement of TLDs having non-Latin characters. Because of this development, the checks used by many software applications to validate domain names and email addresses remain outdated. Many systems do not recognize or appropriately process new domain names and e-mail addresses. These domain names include new generic top-level domains (e.g.,..photography), Internationalized Domain Names (e.g., एमईआईटीवाई.सरकार.भारत/, 红螺寺.网址, صحة.مصر, стопкоронавирус.рф), and country code top-level domains (e.g., .ไทย). In fact, couple of years back, “.bharat” domain was available in 22 Indian languages. Today, not all online portals are primed for the opening of a user account with a related email address, which is why awareness of and support for UA is critical for a truly global, multilingual Internet. The challenge is not only limited to the creation of content in multiple languages, but to ‘accept’, ‘validate’, ‘store’, ‘process’ and ‘display’ through any platform, application, or device.
