IDN Conversion

Technically, all IDN domains are registered in the system in an encoded Latin-characters only form, called punycode. When registering a .tel IDN for you, a provider may convert the name you need into punycode automatically, or you may be asked to provide the punycode version. In that case, please use this converter to get a punycode version of any IDN name you wish to register.
