IDN domains don't permit to mix different Scripts or character sets (for example, Latin, Greek or Cyrillic).
But it's possible to use different character tables for a same script.
- The Latin Script permits the use of characters of Latin-1 supplement, Latin Extended-A, Latin Extended-B, etc.. tables.
- The Greek Script permits to combine characters of the Greek, Greek Extended, etc.. tables, doesn't permit combine them with the normal latin characters (a-z), but permits the use of numbers or hyphens.
- Other script types have their own corresponding tables.

DNS modifications

DNS modification is immediate, please note they must propagate through the network, this process can take up to 6-12 hours to complete, until then the domain will still point to the previous DNS servers.


DNSSEC

We allow the usage of DNSSEC on .be domains. Your domain can take advantage of this additional security layer that DNS servers that are compatible with this technology can provide.
More information is available at: What is DNSSEC and how does it work


Domain owner change

.BE domains permit owner changes, after the modification DNS.be will contact the previous owner by e-mail to accept the change, in case he doesn't accept it after 14 days the owner change will be cancelled.

Once the change completes the domain will be renewed for one year from the same date, that's why the .BE owner changes have cost (the same as the domain renewal).
