Using Multilingual Domains
Just employ any one of the following steps, and you will be able to start using Multilingual Domain Names:

1) Download and install our free iClient
iClient is a free Windows plug-in that enables the use of multilingual domain names and e-mail addresses. It resides in your system tray and automatically detects and converts non-English character requests into the format used for registration and resolution. Upon installation, you will be able to access websites using its hosted multilingual domain name and communicate with friends using e-mail addresses in your very own language.
  • Download our free iClient now
  • See our Demo on iClient

2) If your ISP supports our freely distributed i-DNS server-side software,
then you need not install iClient on your computer in order to use multilingual domain names. Simply start your Internet browser and enter your multilingual domain name on the URL bar to start using multilingual domain names.

3) Just to make a small change to your computer's network settings to access our name servers directly.
Detailed instructions can be found here.
After you have employed any of the 3 methods listed above, you may test using i-DNS.net's sample multilingual web addresses listed here.

System Requirements
You must be able to create and display local script characters on your computer and in the address bar of the browser. This can be achieved using a computer running any of the following:
  • A local language operating system;
  • An English operating system with special "input method editor" software;
  • Microsoft Global Input Method Editor software, available via Windows
    update from Microsoft

Step-by-step on getting to your website using native-character input
1. Click on the URL bar and type in the native language domain name of the website you wish to visit.

2. Press 'Enter' key on your keyboard.

3. If the native language web address has been properly hosted, you would be able to connect to the site. For example,

The [http://] in front of the native language domain name is automatically prefixed onto the URL bar by the browser once the name has been resolved.
