An internationalized domain name IDN is an Internet domain name that contains at least one label that is displayed in software applications , in whole or in part, in a language-specific script or alphabet , such as Arabic , Chinese , Cyrillic , Devanagari , Hebrew or the Latin alphabet -based characters with diacritics or ligatures , such as French. These writing systems are encoded by computers in multibyte Unicode. The DNS, which performs a lookup service to translate user-friendly names into network addresses for locating Internet resources, is restricted in practice  to the use of ASCII characters, a practical limitation that initially set the standard for acceptable domain names. The internationalization of domain names is a technical solution to translate names written in language-native scripts into an ASCII text representation that is compatible with the DNS. Internationalized domain names can only be used with applications that are specifically designed for such use; they require no changes in the infrastructure of the Internet. Chaired by Afilias' Ram Mohan, ASIWG aims to develop a unified IDN table for the Arabic script, and constituted an example of community collaboration that helps local and regional expertise engage in global policy development as well as technical standardization. Although the Domain Name System supports non-ASCII characters, applications such as e-mail and web browsers restrict the characters which can be used as domain names for purposes such as a hostname. Strictly speaking, it is the network protocols these applications use that have restrictions on the characters which can be used in domain names, not the applications that have these limitations or the DNS itself.

In , the administration of the. In , the Irish parliament enacted a law giving the Minister for Public Enterprise the power to make regulations regarding the registration of. The IEDR is considered more conservative than other similar authorities and places certain restrictions on registration. An individual is allowed to register their own name or a variant of it with a utilities bill or passport as proof of entitlement. Registration policies have been liberalised somewhat in recent years and rules such as the one against registering generic domain names have been dropped. In August IEDR began a consultation on removing this restriction and allowing first-come first-served registration; the requirement of a connection to Ireland will remain. Registration is restricted to entities with a connection to Ireland. Thus, American singer Melanie was not allowed to register Melan.
