Accordingly, it is commonly used for internationalized domain names. You have the ability to add international domain names to your server using Punycode, as described below.

Adding The Domain In The AccountCenter

Once you have the punycode for your domain name, you can simply add the domain in the AccountCenter like any other domain name. When doing so, use the punycode value as the domain name. This will create a DNS zone file for that domain name. If you are using the DV server, you will still need to add the domain in the Plesk Control Panel as well.
