Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs)

Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) are domain names represented in local language characters. Such domain names could contain letters or characters from non-ASCII scripts. In India, the IN Registry is also responsible for registering IDNs in Indian Languages.

Why Choose an IDN?

• A relatively smaller proportion of the Indian population is English literate.
• IDNs will be enablers to help further increase the penetration of the Internet through the use of local languages and local vernacular content.

International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has delegated IDNs to NIXI. Seven scripts were previously launched in 2014.
