Abstract:     A method and system for internationalizing domain names is provided which allows domain names to be entered in any language without having to modify the existing Internet domain name servers. When an user enters a domain name including non-English characters into an internet program, a domain name transformer intercepts the domain name prior to reaching the resolver. The domain name is converted to a standard format which can represent all language character sets, such as UNICODE. The UNICODE string is then transformed to be in RFC1035 compliant format. Redirector information is then appended to the compliant string which identifies the delegation of authoritative root servers and/or domain name servers responsible for the domain name. The compliant domain string is then resolved by the authoritative domain name server just as any English domain name.

First Claim:
Show all 38 claims
I claim:     1. A method of converting an internet international domain name to an RFC1035 compliant format, where the international domain name includes non-English characters which are RFC1035 non-compliant, the method comprising:
  • intercepting the international domain name, where the intercepting is transparent to the user;
  • transforming the international domain name to an RFC1035 compliant domain name;
  • automatically generating a redirector string which includes information for resolving the RFC1035 compliant domain name; and
  • appending the redirector string to the RFC1035 compliant do main name.
