==NIDA and ICANN==
In 2008, NIDA expressed its position to ICANN regarding the implementation of IDN TLDs. According to the organiztion, the implementation of IDN
TLDs will serve as a turning point in the history of internet and it is important to ensure the stability of the internet therefore localization should not be overlooked and the community language should be considered one of pre-requisites in the application for IDN TLD.NIDA also suggested that ICANN should provide additional application criteria for IDN TLDs instead of trying to resolve the issue by proposed process such as comparative evaluation and auction.<ref>[http://forum.icann.org/lists/gtld-guide/pdfWfrOf708JK.pdf forum.icann.org]</ref>
