Hard time registering IDN

Hi guys
Yesterday I registered [cartoons].com in Croatian, but it took me three tries. Registration failed at godaddy & 101domain for no real reason given before finally working at Dynadot. In your experience is there any reason why this would happen? Anything to do with the code that might give me hassles later on down the track? The word is crtići, punycode xn--crtii-jxa

Hey

If you are registering with Godaddy it should work if you do it from their IDN registration page. It shouldn't matter whether you use Punycode or Unicode.

Re: Hard time registering IDN

Some registrar like Godaddy, require that you select the language the IDN is in. I'm not sure if they actually check whether the code points are used in the written language.. anyways, you're probably better off at another registrar anyways

A few years ago I transferred some IDNs to Fabulous.com without any problem. But recently when I tried to register a new IDN there it looked promising at the registration stage and I received an initial e-mail confirmation, but this was shortly followed by a failure notification.

Has anyone had any success with registering an IDN at Fabulous.com?

Re: Hard time registering IDN

That's exactly what happened to me. They took my money and then sent me an email saying they couldn't register it.

Yes, it works fine as punycode, not as unicode AFAIK

Though they have upgrade the system now so when you manage domains it shows them in both unicode and punycode. Not sure about searching for domains to manage though.

Re: Hard time registering IDN

I would prefer to register an IDN at Fabulous as that's where almost all of my domains are; it's a real pain to have to keep tabs on domains/renewals at multiple registrars.

You can. I reg IDNs every week there. Just use punycode not unicode.
