I've registered www.❺➠.ws, which goes to the same IP as www.naildrivin5.com.
returns the homepage of www.naildrivin5.com. No problem. I modify apache to use name-based virtual hosts as follows:
<VirtualHost the.ip.address.here:80> ServerName xn--dfi5d.ws DocumentRoot /home/foo/xn--dfi5d.ws/html
(the xn--dfi5d.ws is the punycode version, and my understand is that is how you set up apache for IDNs)
Both Firefox and Safari successfully find the new homepage I have configured.
However, curl is not working quite right.
curl www.❺➠.ws still returns the www.naildrivin5.com homepage, while
curl xn--dfi5d.ws returns the www.❺➠.ws hompage.
I tried using
-H "Host: www.❺➠.ws" to see if setting that header explicitly was required, but it seems not.
I'm running curl on OS X and pasting those characters into the Terminal.app.
My main concern is that I've properly set up Apache to correctly route requests to www.❺➠.ws to the right place (i.e. not to www.naildrivin5.com).
Any curl experts have some suggestions on how to diagnose this?
