Precisely as i have said it would happen:

I removed the domain form CloudFlare and your domains visting my website 
appearing as usual.

Its only when i cloudflare it and the UnicodeError happens.

But why?!?! I see no reason as to why when my domain becomes Cloudflared 
the gethostbyaddr() fails.

What kind of weird strings does it return back?

What is now proved was at first only imagined!
