Host international domain


#1

Can I host international domain names on my dreamhost account?


#2

I believe so, yes. Just point the name server records to the dreamhost nameservers.

http://wiki.dreamhost.com/KB_/Domains/Transfers/Transfer_Hosting/_What_is_your_IPS_Tag_for_my_co.uk_domain? - that states that yes, you can host it.

You definitely can. Just remember that international domains make it look like you’re hosting a subdomain. If you try to host myhost.co.uk, you might have to create a fully hosted domain called co.uk before you can create myhost.co.uk. It’s a harmless workaround, and you might even be able to delete the co.uk hosted domain without interfering with your regular domain.

We’re hosting our .com.hk website on here no problem. The only issue we have is that we cannot register it here, as .com.hk have to be registered with HK DNR. So I just had to log into the HK DNR website and change the nameservers to point to Dreamhost
