Too Long; Didn't Read

Punycode is a special encoding scheme for internationalized domain names, which makes it possible to register domains with foreign characters. It works by converting strings of Unicode (UTF-8) to American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) format. For example, the domain “xn — domain.com” is equivalent to “㯙㯜㯙㯟.com”
