Top-level domains (TLDs) and email addresses have evolved since 2010, when Chinese and other language characters and Top-Level Domains (TLDs) longer than 3 characters (e.g. .museum, .asia, etc.) were introduced.  If you are not aware of the implications of Universal Acceptance (UA), you may risk failing your customers and missing business opportunities.

2. Is Your Email Ready for the Global Market?

Is your system UA-Ready (Universal Acceptance)? To make a system ready for a global audience, users need to be able to write their email address and domain in their native scripts like in Russian, Hindi, Thai or Chinese.
