This conversion tool will convert an International Domain Name (IDN) or nameserver from any one of the following formats to the others:
- Native Characters
This is a string of native characters that have been registered with Registry IDN Testbed.
- RACE Code
This is a string of ASCII characters that have been registered in the Registry IDN Testbed.
Punycode is a simple and efficient ASCII-Compatible Encoding (ACE) designed for use with Internationalized Domain Names. It transforms a Unicode string into a string of characters allowed in hostname labels (ASCII letters, digits, and hyphens) and back again.
How to convert?
To convert an IDN or nameserver from native characters to Punycode Code version that is stored in the Registry Whois database:
