The HOMOGRAPH component added to our Global Domain Name Watch will capture a newly registered Domain name if any of the Roman characters (ASCII characters) of the BRAND in question are replaced by a homograph character (a non-ascii character that looks like the ASCII character) including accented letters, based on a pre-defined list.

The registration is in effect an IDN Registration but is included and captured as part of our standard Global Domain Name Watch service if the Homograph Component is requested. The configuration is limited to the known possible replacements identified in the pre-defined list.
