What are the disadvantages of owning a domain name that contain special characters?
Some special characters are, for example: áéíóú, àèìòù, äëïöü, etc.
These characters open the possibility of creative domain names and shorter names (like www.coffè.com) that would otherwise be already registered because it is a very common word.
I'm specially interested on getting more info on this issues that come to my mind:
- Domain name translation, www.coffè.com would be translated to www.xn--coff-8oa.com. Will users see www.coffè.com or www.xn--coff-8oa.com on their browsers?
- Sending emails to an address like contact@coffè.com. Possible?
