Abstract

With of international standards, including Unicode, CLDR, HTML, etc., it is now becoming increasingly possible to develop and deploy online content in local languages across the globe. However, a user is still required to write the domain name in Latin script to access this information on the internet, which still a barrier for non-Latin script based language speakers. This paper overviews the emerging Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) standards being proposed by Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). The paper also discusses challenges for implementing IDN for Urdu and a possible solution which has been implemented and is currently deployed.
