IDN

Internationalized Domain Names (IDN)

SmartFTP uses IDNA (Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications) to support domains with unicode characters. IDNA is a mechanism to represent non-ASCII domains with only ASCII characters. This "feature" is transparently implemented in SmartFTP and domain names with unicode characters are automatically converted to the IDN format.
