Please fix your static site server to map underscores into hyphens

You state in

Publishing a static website on Bitbucket Cloud requires you to combine your account's name with the domain suffix. So, your account's name must be acceptable to your DNS service. Upper case characters and special characters are typically not acceptable. For example, if your account's name is happy_cat, you would need to create a new account with a username of happycat to use this feature because underscores are not allowed in DNS hostnames. Your repository name would be and the published static website is reached by this URL:

Great. I have an underscore in my username, which I've had with Bitbucket for almost eight years. Now I have to get another account? Oh, and I guess I need to sign up with another email address because Bitbucket won't let me create another account with the same email address.

Could you please just map underscores into hyphens, which are a legal URL domain name?


1 answer

Maybe they will, but I have a feeling they've allowed both underscores and hyphens in existing usernames, so it would be incorrect to map happy-cat to happy_cat, because there may be a valid, existing user named happy-cat who wouldn't want his url getting redirected to another user's account.
