Active Surveys


Launch and Use of IDNs (2017 edition)
Survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/IDNs2017
Close Date: 16 Feb 2016

Background: EURid (.eu) and UNESCO have been conducting research on Internationalised Domain Names (IDNs) since 2010 and published yearly reports entitled ‘The World Report on IDN deployment’. The reports include assessments of IDN data and status, case studies and a comparative analysis on the factors that may impact (positively or negatively) IDN uptake. This survey helps in provided data toward that study as well as for data intelligence within APTLD.  Data from this survey will be sent to EURid and members will also receive a report on the survey results with comparisons to the study conducted last year.
