Internationalized Domain Name -- URL in any Language

From whichever part of the world you belong, no matter what is your mother tongue, if you are reading this post, this means you understands English. Nearly half of the world doesn't know English But still accessing Internet was not very much friendly  for those non-English speaking community to an extent due to the limitation of only having ASCII characters in domain names until few years back. In simple term, before 2011 domains was restricted to be in English language only. In 2011, ICANN approved addition of  IDN gTLDs (Internationalized Domain Name generic Top-Level Domain)in the root zone. And this gives the luxury to the internet community to have a domain url in any language. ICANN has delegated IDN in seven languages to NIXI. Details of those are as follows: Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) Language .भारत .Bharat in Devanagari .ভারত .Bharat in Bangla .భారత్ .Bharat in Telugu .ભારત .Bharat in Gujarati . بھارت .Bharat in Urdu .இந்தியா .Bharat in Tamil .ਭਾਰ
