    I'm able to enter that url successfully for a repository. I'm going to close this issue and have you send a message to our support team. You can email or create an account at Support's JIRA instance at There, you'll get personal service with this issue.

    We use the Django-provided URL validation for that form, which does not allow underscores in the host name. RFC 952 specifies valid characters for a host name:

    A "name" (Net, Host, Gateway, or Domain name) is a text string up to 24 characters drawn from the alphabet (A-Z), digits (0-9), minus sign (-), and period (.)
