πccalilli – eh ?


bit of an in-joke here at the ranch but also a play on words π = pi, πccalilli = piccalilli as in the English spiced pickle.

So WordPress doesn’t seem to have a problem dealing with πccalilli as a name but we’re 2-days and counting to see if https://www.123-reg.co.uk can register πccalilli.com.

Now should resolve itself to http://xn--ccalilli-7dg.com so, essentially, that’s what we’ve tried to register. Had a chat to the 123 support team who have raised a ticket this evening … fingers crossed.

Have no idea if 123 offer Internationalised Domain Names (IDN) but their system shouldn’t have allowed us to buy one if not !

(Just realised that I’m talking to myself with these posts without an externally facing name … oh well, not much different to the other gazillions of blogs out there, eh ?)

UPDATE: So … 31 March 123reg confirm they canNOT manually create IDNs so back to the drawing board …

(originally March 30, 2015 … and πccalilli not the name of the new blog)
