IDN v4 150 x 150

Here, usingjoomla.com would like to introduce you to IDNs - Internationalised Domain Names.

"Most" domain names use ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) characters - latin letters (a - b) and /or numerals (0 - 9) and a hyphen (-)

The use of non-ASCII domain names began in about the year 2008 when Internationalised Domain Names began to emrge allowing domain names to be registered in "local" languages such as: Arabic, Japanese, Chinese, and Russian.

How non-ASCII domain names "work" is beyond the scope of this article - except to say that a series of conversions take place in your browser.

Below - we list some Internationalised Domain Names and their nearest English translation / equivalent.

If you spot an error or omission - please let us know.
