An internationalized domain name (IDN) is an internet domain name that contains at least one character in a language-specific script or alphabet, such as Chinese, Russian or the Latin-based languages with diacritics, such as German, for example, Jörn.tel. For more information about IDNs.
From 15th of June (3 p.m. BST), .tel domains will support IDN names in the following languages: Chinese, Danish, Finnish, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish.
Apart from the restrictions on the types of characters that can be registered and the languages supported, there are no further restrictions on the registration of IDN.tel domain names and 1 and 2 character IDNs are available.
