    Hello,

    Is there a way to setup domain a domain name with capital letters in cPanel ?

    I would like to have something like cPanel.NET instead of cpanel.net showing in my browser. Is it possible ?

    Thank you :)

    Not possible

    While DNS is technically case-insensitive, lower case is preferred. The following RFC provides clarification for case sensitivity in DNS domain names:

    RFC4343 - Domain Name System (DNS) Case Insensitivity Clarifica

    This addresses only DNS and does not consider services such as Apache. The convention is that lowercase letters are preferable in domain names, and cPanel is developed with this in mind, and the input sanitization in cPanel converts domain names to lower case for this reason.
