"?" with US OVT score of 70K, Google Trend highrer than "Tokyo"

I recently successfully registered "www.?.com" with punycodes XN--PID.COM. It resolves if you type the punycode but not when you type "?". Any idea why this is the case? Surprisingly it has a US OVT score of over 70,000 and the search trend is higher than tokyo on Google Trends.

Any insight into this will be greatly appreciative.

Cheers!

Sometimes, unknown characters are displayed as question mark - yes, the ascii question mark, and not some special question mark.

If I could get "?.com" to resolve correctly this would be great with quite a decent OVT score. Any idea who I can contact to inquire about this. ICANN?

!?%$. are not a valid characters for ascii domain names, these ascii characters will never resolve to punycode because they are ascii. Release of !?%$. is unlikely.

You did not have ?.com!

The punycode translates to ?.com because the character can't appear on your system, and ? is used replace such unknown characters.
