CloudFlare enable support for internationalized domain name

CloudFlare has announced that they have enabled complete support for internationalized domain name on their network.

The company said:

CloudFlare has supported Punycodes for our DNS from the beginning, but, as I said, that’s an ugly hack. I’m happy to announce that, as of today, we now support IDNs directly in our interface. If you’ve previously entered your domain using a Punycode, you should now see your domain displayed correctly in its native characters. And if you enter a domain in non-Latin characters, we handle all the backend conversion to make it work gracefully with the global DNS infrastructure. We’ve also added more support throughout our UI for non-Latin characters. In the past, we were overly restrictive on requiring Latin characters in many of the forms on our site. We’ve upgraded our UI site wide to add support for the whole UTF8 character set.
