    It would have been much quicker had you done a forum search first as this has been asked over and over again.
    This is called International Domain Name or IDN.
    Try a search for "idn" include the " ".
    Also Google has lots of info re IDN.

    :)

    Just another quick questions, do i have to install anything on the server for this to work?
    Or reconfigure anything?

    Go on, have a guess
    No, you don't. IDN representation is in ASCII text and so doesn't require anything different.
