    Quick question regarding the provisioning of special character domains from within WHM.

    Tried to add a new DNS zone for a special character domain the special character within
    the domain is "ö". (the domain = waldö.se)

    The registry responsible for the domain sent an email in which the domain name had
    been spellt out as follows: xn--wald-8qa.se. Obv. I tried this as well as numerous other
    ways to including html special character conventions. i.e. ö

    The error received through cpanel and/or whm is: "The domain you have specified does not conform to domain name rules."

    Anyone have any ideas how to get around this?

    Much appreciated.

    Rgs,

    Dan
