Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs)

Updated for 2018: Featuring more than 50 IDNs

Internationalized domain names (IDNs) are domains that support one or more non-ASCII characters. A non-ASCII character includes accented characters such as “ä” or “é.” It also includes any non-Latin script, such as Arabic, Cyrillic, and Tamil.

This map includes all country code top-level IDNs that have, as of April 15th, 2018, received formal approval by the regulatory body ICANN. The IDNs are positioned next to their equivalent country code top-level domains (ccTLDs).

Some countries support more than one IDN to support more than one script, such China and Taiwan. India is a uniquely challenging domain because the country is home to more than 20 official languages across more than a dozen scripts. A special legend details the IDNs, languages and scripts supported in India.
