How to use a IDN (.gr) Domain with our Hosting
Posted by Pacific Host on 04 December 2011 09:45 AM

Say you want to add a .gr domain to your cPanel, its going to give you a nice error about special characters. What you will need to do is get the Punycode (ACE) version of the domain, it would have a xn-- prefix. A site you can use to encode this for you is http://www.idnstuff.com/

An example of a Punycode verison ofr a .gr domain: xn----plbucfmli7bcghsvcof1l.gr

Then just add the (Punycode version) as an addon/parked domain in cPanel. This will also work when signing up for a hosting account. Just sign up with domain xn----plbucfmli7bcghsvcof1l.gr and your Greek characters should work!
