I am currently configuring the different metatags for social sharing on a website that uses an IDN (Internationalized Domain Name).
I came to the realization that the URL shown to the end-user on the post, is not the actual IDN but the decoded one. Digging a bit into this, I came to this conclusion after reading, the wiki for IDNs and the actual encoding mechanism used, punycode.
So, to my understanding, this is normal behavior? If this is normal behavior, is there a way to prevent this from happening?
The reasoning for this question is that, to me, the look of the decoded URL looks like something hacky and the end-user might be averted from clicking on it.
