Solved Domain name in arabic

Post by hamidou5765 on April 22nd 2017, 7:17 pm



Hello,
ForumOtion domain name doesn't check domain name in arabic however much sites are in arabic and domains containg a point (a question if this feature exists I am waiting for an answer).
But I am sure that other hosters host domain names in arabic and you have huge community of arabic forums. It is possible to host domain name of a name containing a point ?
Example :
http://حكم.net/

Then latin domain hamidou.forum.com is readen as hamidou.com.
Latin domain : It is not fair as there is arabic forums on forumotion and may they wish domain name reservation in arabic. Such feature exists for many domain name hosters.

Others hosters could provide such service as it is a suggestion for forumotion forums.

Hello,

So, it's not supposed to be done for that, but theorically, it's possible to host a domain name in arabic.

Actually, the arabic characters are writen as a "puny code" on internet; which means that for example, this : http://حكم.net/ can be interpreted with latin characters, called puny codes. Its puny code is : xn--sgb8bg.

xn--sgb8bg is exactly what حكم is. If you put on your search bar xn--sgb8bg.net , you should be automatically directed to http://حكم.net .

You can actually find all the punycodes you need on : https://www.punycoder.com/

So theorically, if you buy a domain name with this puny code, it should work. For example, when buying your name domain here, you should enter "xn--sgb8bg" instead of حكم.

I hope it's clear, I'm kinda bad at explanations
If you need more informations or anything, let me know ! And if you try and it doesn't work, don't hesitate to tell it to us Wink

Have a good day Very Happy
