Liberalisation + .LU IDN

The only special characters accepted are the ones used in French, German and Luxembourger - honest!.
The IDN domain names eligible between the 1st February 2010 to March 31st, 2010 can be obtained from an existing domain name by replacing a character with the same character. The existing domain name and the corresponding IDN must both be registered to the same owner (same name, same address). The change of an IDN ownership is impossible during the
Launch, which ends in March 31st.

You can start reserving your .LU from today as well as the liberalisation in IDN. The orders will be processed from the 1st February 2010. If it is not possible to create the domain name, you will be refunded in points.
