Did you hear about this exciting new feature? What are actually IDNs?
IDNs are Internationalised Domain Names, sometimes referred to as multi-lingual domain names, which contain
characters from outside the standard ASCII character set (a-z, 0-9 and the hyphen). That's a new approach
which allows you to register a domain name in your language whatever character set you use. There are 39
additional character sets available, supporting over 350 languages including Arabic, Hebrew, Korean, Russian
However the handling of this feature requires additional expertise and it is not offered by all available domain
companies. At Joker.com we do our best to satisfy our customers. We support IDN registration completely or in other words
we offer full IDN compatibility.
Our Registration Process is so simple:
1. You simply have to enter the name in its native format.
2. You must then specify the 'language' of the name you are trying to register by selecting it from the drop down menu.
You then follow the steps outlined on the page, just as you would for any other domain name.
What is punycode?
Punycode is a method by which non-ASCII characters used within IDNs, are converted into a format which uses only ASCII characters.
This method allows an unique and reversible identification of the original domain. Punycode converted domain names are prefixed with 'xn--'.
