hosting IDN, newbie's Q

Will there be any issues hosting IDN on regular hosting companies? Will hosting companies put restriction/surcharge for IDNs?

If yes, are there any preferable hosting that you can recommend?


Thanks in advance for the advice

Re: hosting IDN, newbie's Q

There shouldn't be any problems hosting IDNs and definitely shouldn't be a surcharge.

Just make sure you use the punycode (xn--xxx.com) when you configure the domain at the host. That's one of the reasons the punycode is there - to make IDNs compatible with all the infrastructure already in place.

And a note on registering, the majority here use domainsite.com.

Most of us are using DS, but is DS the cheapest IDN registrar? I remember that the price increases by $1 the following year. $1 makes a big difference when one has 1000 names. And over a period of 3 years, it's $3000.

Re: hosting IDN, newbie's Q

I think basic is $6.99 and standard is $7.99 per year, which includes URL forwarding -- really useful for affiliate program redirection.

I did the $6.99 thing until I got suckerpunched by their $5 charge to add URL forwarding.

Re: hosting IDN, newbie's Q

Oh I c. I haven't used the $6.99 in a while.

I think domainsite is pretty cheap overall, especially for the convenience of being able to scan your domains in unicode.

enom and Moniker both only display domains in punycode.

Next thing we need is for cPanel to go full unicode.
