Hello SorinNemes,

I am not quite understanding what it is you are trying to do. It sounds as if you are wanting to have the domain name display as http://???com in the address bar.

That is not possible as non-english letters are not allowed for domain names on the server, which would have to be done for you to have the chinese domain as an addon or parked domain. To do that, you would need an official domain name of ???.com.

Best Regards,
Scott M.
