    is there any special reason ISPconfig does not accept special characters like æ ø å ö ä ü e.t.c. for the real names of the users, and if not how can i enable special characters for the real user names.

    Thes real names are written to the /etc/passwd file and to prevent problems some special characters are blocked by ISPConfig.

    I don't think Linux allows ø in a username...

    Domain names have to be entered in IDN notation.

    your friend most probably bought the domain, which is gødsbø converted to punycode.
    You should add in ISPconfig, because thats actually the domain.
