We were unable to identify xn--ho8h22i.ws as a registered domain

Hey all,

I registered xn--ho8h22i.ws with gandi.net over 3 days ago, but I’m unable to add the site to cloudflare (although I have successfully added a punycode domain before). When I try I get “We were unable to identify xn--ho8h22i.ws as a registered domain. Please ensure you are providing the root domain and not any subdomains (e.g., example.com, not subdomain.example.com)”

I’ve checked via nslookup, mxtoolbox and others and see both the nameservers and records. The site itself resolves to a gandi placeholder. Interestingly when I try whatsmydns.net as instructed by the troubleshoot guide I get “Error: Invalid hostname” but I wonder if that’s just something to do with it being punycode?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cloudflare supports up to Unicode 13, it looks like the bubbles in that is from Unicode 14.

Ahh okay, that’s the bit of info I was missing. I didn’t realise there was a distinction. Thanks for clarifying!
