What are IDN Domains?

Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) are domain names that use characters other than the letters A-Z from the Latin alphabet. These types of domain names contain non-ASCII characters such as Chinese, Arabic, or Russian. IDN domains allow international accessibility of the Internet by allowing users to register domain names in their own language and character set.

Dynadot was one of the first domain registrars to offer international domains and we have over 30 top-level domain (TLD) extensions that support IDNs in a variety of languages.

Why Register IDN Domains?

Although the Internet was founded on the English language, only 10% of the world's population are native English speakers. The most spoken language in the world today is Chinese, which uses a completely different character set than the Latin alphabet that English uses. Imagine trying to access the Internet, but being unable to read or write English and having to type in foreign characters to access websites. International domains are the solution to this problem.

As of 2012, over 70% of the world's Internet users were non-English speakers. As Internet usage rises around the world, that number will likely grow, making international domains a big opportunity. Registering your international domain is the best way to connect with a non-English speaking audience because not only will your website be in their native language, but your domain will be too.

IDN Domain FAQs

What is UTF-8?
UTF-8 is a sequence of encoded characters that can represent characters in a foreign language. Your browser will display this data using an appropriate or familiar font.

What is Punycode?
Punycode transforms a Unicode sequence into a string of ASCII characters. Only letters (A-Z), digits (0-9), and hyphens are allowed. Punycode sequences always represent IDN domains starting with the characters "xn--".

What is ASCII?
ASCII stands for the American Standard Code for Information Interchange. It is a character-encoding scheme based on the English alphabet.

What is an IDN domain variant?
A variant is an alternative form of the domain name.

Why is there a drop down menu of languages next to some TLDs when I search for IDN domains?
ICANN requires that IDN domain registrations be associated with a language or set of languages. When you do an IDN domain search, you need to select the appropriate language from the drop down menu to register your domain. This ensures the appropriate language rules are applied to your domain name. Please note that not all TLDs follow this requirement, so if you do not see a drop down menu, you do not need to specify a language.

Why was my IDN domain not registered?
Sometimes our IDN domain search will say that your IDN domain is available, but we will not be able to register the domain for you. You can find more information on what causes IDN domain registration problems in our help files.

For more information about IDN domains, see the International Domain Names (IDN) section in our help files.
