    Hello,

    As you know punycode names include multiple hyphen such as "xn----ymcbd1agcbocd3wsaf46lhq"

    This looks like cPanel doesn't allow such names for subdomain because of multiple joint hyphen however I can create this name in DirectAdmin!

    So I can create xn----ymcbd1agcbocd3wsaf46lhq.movie-18.com in DirectAdmin but can't do it in cPanel!

    Any solution?!

    Same issue

    cPanel still does not allow the use of punycode (xn-jtkok-xqa1d) for the subdomains. You can add the domain (xn-jtkok-xqa1d.domainname.com) as an addon domain, but if the hosting company restricts your addon domains then you lose one of your top level domains.

    Is there a way around this? Maybe disabling the check to see if the subdomain is correct?

    Wild Card

    You may use wild card and redirect to a file to process which file should be displayed for every subdomain!
    I didn't find any better solution, yet.
