Idn Cctld

An internationalized country code top-level domain (IDN ccTLD or ccIDN) is a top-level domain (TLD) in the Domain Name System (DNS) of the Internet. IDN ccTLDs are specially encoded domain names that are displayed in an end user application, such as a web browser, in their language-native script or alphabet, such as the Arabic alphabet, or a non-alphabetic writing system, such as Chinese characters. IDN ccTLDs are an application of the internationalized domain name system to top-level Internet domains assigned to countries, or independent geographic regions.Although the domain class uses the term code, some of these ccTLDs are not codes but full words.
