What are Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs)?
Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) are foreign language domain names that include non-ASCII characters. You can register an IDN using the native language characters or standard punycode character format. If you enter the language characters, we convert it to punycode and register the punycode version with the registry.
To view characters in an IDN, you must adjust your language settings in your Web browser. If you can't see the characters, you might need to install a foreign language pack. For more information, see the Help for your Web browser.
