Hmmm --- I see that you have put in dots and broken the domain into subdomains.
The limit of 63 ascii characters has to do with the number of bytes that can be processed efficiently; also see:
This forum says that some browsers are only able to process 59 ascii characters.
And I tend to agree that a longer domain can probably best be handled by breaking it into several subdomains.
