    After reading several posts at this forum regarding IDN domains, I tried to park the IDN domain jugendbücher.de on top of an existing account in WHM 9.1.0.

    At first, I converted the domain name to PUNYCODE as well as RACE using the IDN conversion tool at http://mct.verisign-grs.com/conversiontool/index.shtml
    and also installed the i-Nav plugin for IE at http://www.idnnow.com/index.jsp

    Then I tried to park the PUNYCODE xn--jugendbcher-zhb.de as well as the RACE bq--abvhkz3fnzsgf7ddnbsxe.de, but the domain cannot be displayed.

    Did I miss anything else?
    Has anybody actually got IDN domain names working with WHM / CPanel?

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    I also tried to input the special characters - in this case the umlaut - directly using UTF-8 encoding. But then WHM just drops the special character when parking the domain...

    Maybe, it is impossible to set up or park IDN domains using WHM / CPanel?

    Use PUNYCODE. :D

    The domain will be fully functional in cPanel.
    However, it WANT display with its native characters in cPanel - but in PUNYCODE.

    In MBs user section - it will display as IDN :)

    But it is functional!
