How to register a IDN Domain for free (not .com)

So, I love IDN Domains Because you can convert any special Character into a domain but not common special characters like . or ,

So I made a tutorial for anyone who wants to register a domain name with special characters for free, let’s get started

All the stuff we will be using / Resources:

http://xn--domain.net – Punycode Converter
http://freenom.com – Domain Registrar
https://www.freewebhostingarea.com/ – Web Hosting.
https://translate.google.com/ – Translator (Optional)

So first off, Let’s start with Translator (Skip this step if you already have a sentence with special characters to convert into Punycode)

1. Translate anything from (Whatever language you understand or can speak) to (Whatever language you want your domain to be)
I am choosing English to Chinese (traditional)
and I want to translate “Internationalized Domain Test”
now we have “國際化域名測試”
2. Copy the text

Tip: You can close Translator now, we don’t need it anymore

— Converting it into Punycode

3. Go to xn--domain.net (Or click on the link on resources)
Tip: You can remove the .com part since we won’t be registering a .com domain
4. Paste your text on the “domain” part
Converting “國際化域名測試” to Punycode = “xn--cjr6vy5ejyav92f0n9a43r”
5. Copy the text on the “ASCII compatible” part

Tip: You can close Punycode Converter now, we don’t need it anymore

— Domain Registration Part

6. Go to http://freenom.com (Or check out the resources)
7. Paste your Punycode Text on the “Find a new FREE domain” part and click on “Check availability
8. Now pick a Domain that is free
I chose .tk so our domain will be “xn--cjr6vy5ejyav92f0n9a43r.tk” or “國際化域名測試.tk”
9. Click on Check out
10. Set-up the domain a bit.
11. Click on Continue
12. Make a new account or Log in via an existing account
13. Your domain is now registered
14. Go to My Domains
15. Choose your domain
16. Click on nameservers

Tip: Do not Close Freenom, we still need it
