See /usr/doc/doc-rfc/Standard_Protocols/rfc1035.txt.gz.

>From RFC1035:

  The labels must follow the rules for ARPANET host names.  They must
  start with a letter, end with a letter or digit, and have as interior
  characters only letters, digits, and hyphen.  There are also some
  restrictions on the length.  Labels must be 63 characters or less.
