ICANN approves Arabic domain for UAE

Quote:
ABU DHABI - The Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (TRA) has registered another millstone with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers’ (ICANN’s) approval of the string (emarat) as the official Arabic top level domain for the United Arab Emirates.

The announcement made by ICANN follows TRA’s announcement to use of the Arabic top level domain name for the UAE in GITEX 2009, providing the approval of ICANN. The .ae Domain Administration (.aeDA) was established by TRA as the Regulatory Body and Registry Operator for the .ae domain name. aeDA is responsible for enforcement of all policies reference to the operation of the .ae country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) as well as overseeing the operation of the Registry System.
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) re-delegated the UAE ENUM space (971) to TRA, which in turn entrusted .aeDA with the management of the whole issue. Since then it has proven to possess an excellent capability to manage the .ae ccTLD from both administrative and technical perspectives in compliance with International Best Practices.
The UAE successfully passed the rules set by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICCAN), an organization responsible for managing the sources of the numbers and names on the Internet. Thus, the UAE has become one of the first countries to receive approval.
The decision to introduce Arabic domain names will contribute to increasing the number of surfers to Arabic sites and further promote and strengthen the UAE’s identity. Presently, most websites in the country use the ‘.ae’ English domain address, which is regulated by the TRA’s

Re: ICANN approves Arabic domain for UAE

here: www.tra.ae

2010

حققت هيئة تنظيم الاتصالات نجاح أخر مشهود تمثل في حصول الهيئة من خلال إدارة أسماء نطاق الإنترنت (aeDA) على الموافقة، على اسم النطاق العربي لدولة الامارات .امارات حيث تم اجتياز بنجاح القواعد التي وضعتها منظمة (الآيكان) وهي المؤسسة الدولية المسؤولة عن ادارة مصادر الارقام والاسماء على الانترنت، حيث تعتبر دولة الامارات العربية المتحدة من اوائل الدول التي تحصل على الموافقة.

وتأتي الموافقة بعد أن قامت الهيئة بالإعلان عن اول اسم نطاق باللغة العربية في المنطقة: النطاق الوطني لدولة الإمارات (.امارات) وذلك خلال فعاليات مؤتمر جيتكس من العام الماضي، وذلك ضمن استراتيجتها لدعم وتطوير المحتوى العربي على شبكة الإنترنت، حيث أعلنت الهيئة عن خططها لإطلاق (.امارات) ليكون اسم نطاق (عنوان الإنترنت) دولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة ضمن التوجه الجديد "لمنظمة الآيكان" – المؤسسة الدولية المسؤولة عن إدارة مصادر الأرقام والأسماء على الإنترنت - بفتح المجال لاستخدام لغات أخرى غير اللغة الإنجليزية كمعادل لأسماء النطاقات الخاصة بالدول، بحيث يكون هناك معادل لغوي عربي للنطاق الأجنبي المستخدم حالياً وهو ( ae. ). وقد وافق المجلس الوزاري للخدمات على المقترح المقدم مسبقاً من الهيئة على أن يكون (.امارات) هو اسم النطاق للدولة باللغة العربية.

ويذكر ان الهيئة قامت بتأسيس إدارة أسماء نطاق الإنترنت (aeDA) كمنظم ومشغل التسجيل لإسم النطاق الوطني لدولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة على الإنترنت (ae.), حيث تتولى مسؤولية ضبط وتنفيذ جميع السياسات فيما يتعلق بتشغيل نطاق المستوى العلوي لرمز الدولة، بالإضافة إلى الإشراف على تشغيل نظام .

ويجدر الاشارة الى ان الاتحاد الدولي للاتصالات قام بإعادة تفويض هيئة تنظيم الإتصالات في الدولة لإدارة النطاق الرقمي للدولة (971) ENUM ، حيث قامت الهيئة بدورها بتفويض إدارة أسماء نطاق الإنترنت بتشغيل النطاق الرقمي للدولة بعد أن أثبتت الإدارة قدراتها الفنية والإدارية في إدارة اسم النطاق الوطني للدولة (ae.) بما يتوافق مع أرقى المعايير والممارسات في مجال تسجيل أسماء النطاق. ويتكون الترقيم الإلكتروني أو ما يطلق عليه اسم "ENUM" من مجموعة من البروتوكولات والتقنيات المستخدمة لربط نظام الترقيم الهاتفي مع نظام عنونة الإنترنت.

in egypt , they sold already tons of .com.eg to registered entities

but this time they are thinking of opening .egypt(IDN) registrations to individuals to get the most benefit of it ..... popularity and financial income

so .com.eg registration will be different from .IDN(egypt)

anyhow let us wait and see ....hope it works
