Using international characters

You can enter international characters like Á, ج, or グ (also called "extended" or "non=ASCII" characters) in your contact information. However, some domains, such as .org, do not support displaying these characters in the WHOIS results. Therefore, if you include international characters in your contact information, and you keep your contact information public, your public whois information will include a English alphabet (ASCII) approximation of your information.

For example, "グ グーグル" would be replaced with "Google" in the public WHOIS results.

Note: This will not affect the WHOIS results returned if you select private registration (WHOIS privacy). See private registration

IMPORTANT: You cannot include international characters in your contact email for domains that do not support international characters. 


About contact information

To ensure definitive decisions can be made about domain name ownership, ICANN requires all domain registrants to submit their contact information when registering a domain.

There are three contacts for every domain. All three can use the same name and address address. Initially all three are populated with the contact information you enter in the Contact information screen when you register or transfer in your domain.

  • Registrant: The owner of the domain.
  • Admin: The person responsible for administrative decisions about your domain.
  • Tech: The person responsible for technical changes to your domain.

Registrant contact information (including name, mailing address, phone number, and email address) is publicly available through WHOIS lookups. If you do not want your contact information made public, please enable private registration.
