Reply from a well known UK registry regarding the double hyphen

I've been playing email tennis with a well know UK registry for the past 2 weeks regarding a Japanese name I bought through them (It escapes me now what it was)

Anyway, I registered xn--xxxxxxxx.com with them, registration went through, no probs but whois didnt update.

So I emailed them asking why and they replied that they were "looking into it as it appears to be a fault a our registrar"
Then they tell me they are unable to register xn--xxxxxxx.com, no reasons given.
So asked them is there any particular reason why and they tell me "We do not sell domain names with -- in the name"
Fine, so I repeat my request as to why, explaining all about punycode and unicode and about how I hve several of these names, told them all about IDN's and the growing market for them. provide examples with whois results etc etc and I recieve a final reply...
" Hi
The double hyphen is simply not allowed by the registrars of .com domain names. These rules are governed by www.icann.org, the internet’s governing body...."


Sheesh..... Some people cant see the gold for the hills......

If they are not approved as a register of IDN by the registry that is quite correct, request for xn-- names will be kicked back, but you probably can transfer them in if you want!
