UASG (Universal Acceptance Steering Group) :
Universal Acceptance (UA) is the principle that every top-level domain (TLD) should function within all applications regardless of script, number of characters, or how new it is.Historically, there were a limited number of TLDs available in strings of two or three Latin-script characters. This began to change in 2000, when ICANN introduced new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) that were longer than three characters, such as .info and .museum. In February 2015, the Universal Acceptance Steering Group (UASG) was formed by the ICANN community to facilitate the adoption of Universal Acceptance principles by software developers and website owners.
