Will it be possible to apply for any domain name?

In principle, yes. ICANN establishes certain restrictions (states officially accepted by the UN, other territories, domain names with less than three letters and other exceptions). PuntuEus Foundation will reserve some domain names (names of towns and cities, for example, in order to be reserved for the respective city council). Therefore, if the potential domain name is in the list of exceptions, it won’t be elegible. Accents, umlauts and ‘ñ’ will be accepted as characters and, in this way, registering ñ, will automatically register and without any additional cost, both working as if they were a single domain.
