Adding domain name with international characters such as ñ gives an error that it is invalid




If you receive the error "invalid domain" when trying to create a domain in cPanel that has international characters, you will need to convert it.

You can use an IDN converter such as https://www.punycoder.com/

Enter the domain as it normally is with the international characters: mydomaiñ.com

And it will give you the converted version necessary to add it in cPanel in ASCII: xn--mydomai-b0a.com
