  1. Punycode

    In computing, Punycode is an instance of a general encoding syntax by which a string of Unicode characters is transformed uniquely and reversibly into a smaller, restricted character set. Punycode is intended for the encoding of labels in the Internationalized Domain Names in Applications framework, such that these domain names may be represented in the ASCII character set allowed in the Domain Name System of the Internet. The encoding syntax is defined in IETF document RFC 3492. The IDNA methodology encodes only select label components of domain names with a procedure called ToASCII. The procedure ToUnicode decodes the DNS label into Unicode representation.
