Azure App Service Always On requests invalid URL for accented domain

We have an app service with multiple custom domains, one of which contains an accented é character which is converted into %C3%A9 by AlwaysOn, which causes an error in the application.

Is there a way around this?

    Hi @Daniel Stout ,

    Thanks for your patience. I was able to confirm with the engineering team that this is expected behavior. Hostnames with special characters and Punycode are not supported. I believe Ryan also mentioned the same thing in your post here.

    Best,
    Grace
