beware of mistypes...

all right, maybe some of you know this well, but some (like me before) might not be aware of this.

which one will you buy:

cпpaвoчник xn--cpao-i4d1bown8f
cпpавoчник xn--cpo-7cdk1bown8f
cпpавочник xn--cp-8kci4amthf8f
спpавочник xn--p-8sbgykqger9d
etc... mny other variations...

bad news - none of them is real!

this is real:
справочник xn--80aesinfeih9d

what's the difference? in the first several examples the cyrillic letters were changed by the latin ones that look exactly the same.

beware if someone tried to sell you something like this - check by yourself by re-typing the whole word in cyrillic. OR be sure you are doing this when register from someone else's lists because it could be just a mistake - like i just did.

hope it would be useful for someone.

getting into idn field - want to make sure, i'll know all the little things. again: i still see so many available russian idn domains - now try to make sure i switched my keyboard language before typing anything. )

Re: beware of mistypes...

One guy from another forum gave a good tip for this.

Drewbert:

The other way to spot them quickly is to look at the punycode version. - ascii characters don't require encoding, so they appear clear in the punycode, with aq THIRD hyphen seperating them from the encoded bits.

A third hyphen, with no hypen in the resultant domain is a sure sig of mixed script, when you're supposed to be dealing with pure non-latin characters.

---


now look at the punycodes of the domains i gave as examples and it will be clear.

Re: beware of mistypes...

You can also put the term in Google and check results.
The mixed scripts will give low google scores.

yes, good tip. or you can try in yandex.ru or their wordstats - if you see really not so many results for a generic word - than there might be a mistype.

the point is: always check twice before registerring an idn.

Re: beware of mistypes...

actually it is not possible to register a russian IDN with latin characters in it. The registrar will show that it is available but will not register it. Any registrar.
Which is too bad IMO because there are two word combinations with russian+english words with huge yandex

yeah, cause it has such a great search volume.
it's a really smart technology and even idea - that you can't register something wrong and useless. if we were able to register this one, oh, there would be so many complications with mixed latin and cyrillic (other) letters.
