Dear John,
Thank you for correcting me immediately.I am sorry that I gave a bad
example.Of course, I don't want to register devanagari IDN with .JP. What I
should have written is I am looking for something like www.ààààà.com. 
devnagari charset ( used for Nepali in Nepal and Hindi in India). I was
looking for something like www.àààààà.com.

Ok I found it.  domainsite.com.
