Making sense of internationalized domain names

Paul Sawers of The Next Web has written an in-depth article on the evolution of internationalized domain names (IDNs).

It’s a great article for quickly getting up to speed on how non-Latin domains work on the Internet and how they’ve been doing over the past year since they went live. To be clear, although what I call partial IDNs have been around for many years it was only until last year that you could register a full-length IDNs – that is, both the domain name plus the country code in the local script (Cyrillic, Arabic, etc). And it is full-length IDNs that promise to change the way millions of people search for and use web sites.

Here’s the article.

  1. Hey there John,

    Thanks for the article. I didn’t have a clue about the non-Latin domains. Now I have a basic idea.

    Keep up the good work man.
