Google + 5 Registries Release Domain Test: “Developers Can Test Compatibility with New gTLD’s”

Posted on the 23 March 2016 by Worldwide @thedomains

Google registry released a new tool “Domain Test” which is a “tool designed to help developers test their applications for compatibility with new top-level domains (TLDs). ”

Domain Test was “developed by Google and launched in a partnership between Google Registry and Ausregistry, CentralNic, Donuts, RightSide, and Uniregistry.

Domain Test is an open source project available under the Apache 2 license and can be used across 145 new TLDs.”

“It is freely available for use and modification.” So it’s an open source code”

The notice on the site laying out the program goes on to explain:

“In 2011, the Internet Committee for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approved a new gTLD program, where applicants could apply to own and operate new gTLDs. A total of 1,930 applications were filed, and beginning in 2013, ICANN began delegating new gTLDs to the root DNS zone. These gTLDs have a series of characteristics, such as string length and the use of non-Latin scripts, that can cause bugs in software. Domain Test helps developers identify and fix these problems.

This repository contains the documentation and code for Domain Test.

For clarity, the documentation uses the term “new TLDs” to refer to the universe of new generic top-level domains (gTLDs), new country-code top-level domains (ccTLDs), and internationalized domain names (IDNs).

The Domain Test service runs on AppEngine and is available for any developer to use. The syntax examples in this documentation use the domaintest.みんな domain name. However, depending on what type of new TLD you want to test, you can substitute any of the strings in the Domain Test TLDs section of this documentation.”
