A Multilingual Internet

For Everyone, Everywhere

What is iDNS?

iDNS stands for Internationalized Domain Name System - a technology developed by i-DNS.net International enabling the use of multi-lingual domain names on the Internet.

* NJStar "Unicode Domain Names" is an authorized i-DNS registrar.

What problem does iDNS solve?

The present Domain Name System (DNS), adopted globally, only allows domain names to be registered in Roman (English) characters, even for countries that do not use these characters in their written language. An understanding of English has become a hidden prerequisite for anyone who wishes to use the Internet.

With iDNS technology, you can register any Internet domain name in any language - Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French, German, Tamil, Arabic, etc. At the same time it is fully compatible with commonly used Internet browsers and is inter-operable with the existing DNS.

Language-specific sites can market the addresses of their site in the native written language, using the appropriate alphabet or ideogram. All people have to do to access the site is type in the domain name in the relevant language. It’s a simple and intuitive process.

Why should I consider multi-lingual domain names?

  • Provides for a more comfortable Internet experience for non-English speakers, which make up 92% of the world’s population;
  • Asserts cultural identity by enabling users to register their name, company name, or phrase in their native written language;
  • Preserves language integrity and allows users to interact on the Internet in the language they feel most comfortable with;
  • Solves the multi-lingual deficiency of the current Domain Name System (DNS) by opening up new opportunities as Web access and interaction is facilitated and new name spaces generated;
  • Empowers non-English speaking people to tap into the power of the Internet and eCommerce, thus opening up new markets (especially those where English is not comfortably used);
  • Entrenches a person or company's web identity and web presence as domain names represent the electronic brands of the new economy; and
  • Creates an affinity with the non-English speaking business market by speaking their language.
