Upper & lower case for website?


#1

Can you register a webiste, or make it up so that it is a mix of upper and lower charcters? Example: http://ToyFoxTerrierLuvr.com instead of http://toyfoxterrierluvr.com

Also, if there is a straight lower case rule, does it also apply to email accounts?

For both of the questions, the answer is no.

But CMIIW, if you are using linux. The internal mail - which based on user account - that case sensitive applied to mail account.

In short, both domain names and email addresses can be considered case-insensitive.

Actually, domain names are effectively case insensitive (although URLs are not) from the perspective of the web browser. DreamHost.com, dreamhost.com, and DREAMHOST.COM will all produce the same result. MyName@MyDomain.com is the same as myname@mydomain.com too.

However, the path portion of URLs (the subdirectories and filenames that follow the domain name) are case sensitive, so be careful you’re consistent in how you name your files and how you refer to them in URLs.
