Internationalized Domain Name
Last modified: Wednesday, March 23, 2005 

Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) are domain names or Web addresses, represented by local language characters. When a user types an IDN in local language characters, an IDN resolution process is required to locate the corresponding Web site or e-mail address. The native language domain name will be followed by .com or .net. The goal of Internationalized Domain Names is to improve the international accessibility and functionality of the Internet by allowing users to register domain names in non-English languages.
