Windows 7: Egypt launches Arabic web domain

Egypt launches Arabic web domain

Quote:
Egypt will open the world's first Arabic language internet domain, its communications minister has said.

Tarek Kamel said the new domain name would be ".masr" written in the Arabic alphabet. It translates as ".Egypt". "It is a great moment for us... The internet now speaks Arabic," Mr Kamel said.

Last month, internet regulator Icann voted to allow non-Latin web addresses. Domain names can now be written in Arabic, Chinese and other scripts.

This is one domain that I will never need, but after reading the article, it seems that many Egyptians aren't happy about it either.

The BBC articel is from last November. I posted it because as of today it's reality (Foreign Language Domain Names Launch - The World Newser).

It's now possible to register Arabic domains in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

I disagree. This represents a major policy change in regulating domains. It has ramifications for Asian languages also.

I think your comment was a bit harsh.

Whatever we think, regardless of possible prejudiced thinking, this day stays forever as a milestone in Internet history. As of today, it is possible to use other than Latin based alphabet to register domains.

I find posting this anything but stupid and pointless. In fact, I find it very important news. I'm sorry you feel my post pointless.

No, I wasn't calling your post pointless. I'm sorry. I was saying that it wouldn't be of use to most people. I'm deleting my last comment.

I misunderstood you. I'm sorry.

There's over 500 million Arabic speakers in the world, half of them native. These three first countries to allow Arabic domains have a total population of over 110 million.

Bahman, you already asked this question, and both Barefoot Kid and me answered you. Read the answers here and here.

You should remove the email address from your post, it's against the forum rules.
