To achieve universal acceptance, it is important for all stakeholders in the Internet ecosystem, including domain name registries, email service providers, application developers, and others, to adopt and implement technical standards that support non-ASCII domain names and email addresses. Additionally, education and awareness-raising efforts can help promote universal acceptance and ensure that users are aware of the options available to them.

The Universal Acceptance (UA) Guidelines are a set of best practices and recommendations for supporting the use of all domain names and email addresses, regardless of their script, language, or format. The guidelines were developed by the Universal Acceptance Steering Group (UASG), a community-led initiative that works to promote Universal Acceptance of all domain names and email addresses.

The UA Guidelines provide detailed recommendations for software and system developers, domain name registries, email service providers, and other stakeholders involved in the management and implementation of Internet systems and applications. The guidelines cover a wide range of topics related to Universal Acceptance, including:

  1. Domain name registration and administration
  2. Email address validation and handling
  3. IDN implementation and support
  4. Web and application development
  5. Testing and validation
  6. User education and awareness

  • Check the availability of your desired email ID: Once you have chosen an email service provider, you can check if your desired email ID is available in Indian languages. You may need to check the provider's website or contact their support team for more information.
