While domain names technically have no restrictions on the characters
they use and can include non-ASCII characters, the same is not true for
host names.

Host names are the names most people see and use for things like e-mail
and web browsing. Host names are restricted to a small subset of the
ASCII character set known as LDH, the Letters A–Z in upper and lower
case, Digits 0–9, Hyphen, and the dot to separate LDH-labels; see RFC
3696 section 2 for details.
