Japanese characterset IDN domains - how do I setup these on a DNS server
Posted on 2008-10-04
I have a couple of Japanese language (IDN) domain names. These consist of Japanese characters followed by the .JP TLD.
I need to have these added to a DNS server. Currently we're running BIND 9.2.4 on a shared DNS server. I tried just adding the domain but it didn't work, I didn't expect it to so no surprise there.
I have heard of some kind of ascii translation that can be done but I'm finding it hard to locate information on this subject.
Could someone please explain the process that will allow me to add these domain names to the BIND server.
Alternatively some kind of external DNS server solution would also be acceptable so long as it is reasonably priced.
