Hi everyone,

I am trying to add the domain name with .РФ extension (Cyrillic characters). My steps:

  1. From admin panel, click on “DNS” menu
  2. click on “Add Domain” button
  3. Enter *** a) domain name with .РФ extension *** b) IP address of droplet *** c) select the droplet (ubuntu 64bit, deployed in Amsterdam)

I get error: “name only valid hostname characters are allowed… A-Z, 0-9…”

Question: How to set up domain with Cyrillic characters and .РФ extension?

Thank you everyone for reading and taking your time to help.

Best wishes!


I would suggest submitting a support ticket to official DO staff. There’s probably nothing that community can do about this, к сожалению ;-)
