IDN Information

You can now offer .tel domains to your registrants in their native languages with Internationalized Domain Names (IDN). With non-English alternatives to domain name registration, .tel continues to be globally relevant. With a majority of the world speaking non-English languages, .tel will continue to explore and add new IDN tables to its name space. Looking for the ability to offer a language not listed below? Please contact us to submit your suggestions and continue to check back often as we will update this site with additional information and IDN implementation timelines for .tel domain names.
