For example, can you visually differentiate between ctid.com vs. сtid.com ?

What is Script Spoofing?
Script Spoofing (also called "IDN homogonous attack") is the act of using a domain name that has visually similar character(s) to imitate another domain name. IDN stands for Internationalized Domain Name.
Why should I be concerned about Script Spoofing?
Script Spoofing presents a high online security risk and can cause significant damage to individuals and companies. In the event that a virus is connected to the Script Spoofing, it can result in network-wide software issues and hardware failure. Moreover, if login credentials are compromised, other sensitive data can be compromised. Sensitive data can include personal data, financial data, client data, and company data. Bad actors may sell or use such data to steal identities and funds. In the cyber-world, there may not be any recourse for such loss.
International Cyber Attacks:
International cyber-attacks, especially Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks, typically originate overseas and elude prosecution by local jurisdictions.
DoS attacks are usually considered anonymous in nature due to IP Spoofing, the lack of international regulations, and lack of international cooperation.
Although some DoS Prevention technology exists, they become obsolete and circumvented over time as DoS attacks become increasingly prevalent and sophisticated.
Therefore, network providers are forced to address and resort to approaches that simply contain and mitigate DoS attacks.
Denial-of-Service Alert Technology:
The Denial-of-Service Alerter is technology that helps to mitigate the adverse affects of DoS attacks. The Alerter can give notice to the server's administrator that a DoS attack is in progress. Thus, the administrator may have the opportunity to address the DoS attack issue before the server's impending interruption of service. The technology also takes into account distributed denial-of-service attacks (attacks from a distributed source of ips). Among other metrics, the technology measures the frequency of connections and detects traffic, events, and requests.
Denial-of-Service Prevention by Shutdown Technology:
The Denial-of-Service Prevention by Shutdown Technology is automated technology that detects a DoS attack in progress and shuts down the server temporarily to prevent the server from completely going out of service. This can give the server administrator more time to address the DoS issue. Further, it might allow the server's administrator to implement remedial measures before the server's impending suspension of service.
Denial-of-Service Catch-All Technology:
The Denial-of-Service Catch-All is technology that attempts to broadly detect a DoS attack by measuring when the server's CPU is about to reach a certain point or its limits.
This indirect methodology focuses on various metrics apart from brute force attacks or traditional IP analysis.
Further, the approach emphasizes network resources as opposed to visitor identification and connection attributes. Therefore, it does not differentiate between intentional DoS and unintentional DoS (high traffic due to popularity).
