This page describes how to use internationalized domain names (IDN) with Cloud DNS.
Creating a new managed public zone with an IDN suffix
Cloud DNS lets you create a domain name by using Punycode, which some applications can recognize and render in an international language-specific script.
To see how your domain name visually converts from Unicode characters to the equivalent ASCII-Compatible Encoding (ACE) form, use the IDN converter tool.
To create a new managed zone with an IDN suffix, complete the following steps.
In the Google Cloud Console, go to the Create a DNS zone page.
For the Zone type, select Public.
Enter a Zone name. For example,
Enter a DNS name suffix in Punycode format for the zone by using a domain name that you own.
For example, for the domain name to appear as
example.ελ, use the IDN representation of
ελfor the suffix, which is
.xn--qxam. All records in the zone share this suffix.
Under DNSSEC, select
Transfer. For more information, see Enabling DNSSEC for existing managed zones.
Click Create. The Zone details page is displayed.
