A U-label is an IDN domain name with special characters, such as belgië.be
An A-label is the ASCII version of a U-label; in other words: an A-label uses ASCII characters only (A-Z, 0-9 and/or ‘-’) to display the domain name. This conversion is carried out automatically by the DNS Belgium registration system. This conversion is required to enable your browser to surf to the correct page.
