For the purposes of the SGNIC IDN test-bed, domain names registered will be in either Chinese or Tamil and will be followed by '.idn.sg'.
Currently, Vooju will stop taking IDN registrations on 31 Oct 2005, as we feel that our registrants should receive at least 2 months participation in the test-bed.
We, however may consider re-opening registrations in the event that SGNIC extends the test-bed duration.
For more information, please check our website regularly.

Select the language (Chinese or Tamil) and then enter the domain name of your choice in the search box and click the 'search' button.
You should use the IME and type the Chinese/Tamil characters into the box. Alternatively if you have the characters in another document, you can try cut and paste. What is important is that
(a) you can see the characters displayed properly in the search box (not showing ??? or little boxes) and that
