IDN – International Domain Names

What is IDN?
IDN or Internationalized Domain Name is, as the name suggests, the name of an internet domain. IDNs are written in different alphabets, such as Latin, Chinese, Arabic, and with specific characters, such as diacritics. It’s enough for the domain to have one single letter that isn’t in the normal alphabet (A-Z), isn’t a number (0-9) or a hyphen (-), in order for it to be considered an IDN. By using the Punycode, IDN’s allow internet users to access any internet domain as if it was written in their own alphabet.

Domain Name System
IDNs can be found in the Domain Name System (DNS). The Domain Name System translates network addresses by using ASCII strings.
