Arabic Internet use set to shift to .shabaka in mid-2013

Quote:
".shabaka will be a game-changer for the Arabic community," Ms Omer said. "It will open a channel to intuitively connect Arabic speakers to Arabic content and provide an end-to-end Arabic online experience."
From here


Yea, never mind .كوم, chewbaka is the one

I take my sarcastic comment back.

It's شبكة with priority 3 and google trans says Network , web and a few others.

If it says Network, that's a good one.

That's the danger of people translating domain names that are in press releases. They end up coming up with something that doesn't exist and isn't about to.

I don't have much faith in this TLD. It sucks as a TLD, IMHO.

Just can't compete with كوم and نت.

I believe any new arabic extension released will be just a good advertisement for كوم and نت

it will train people to type full name in arabic >>>> they will go to كوم at the end

I wish that these new arabic extensions succeed >>>> it means good news for كوم and نت

but I also don't have much faith in them

AW: Arabic Internet use set to shift to .shabaka in mid-2013

dotShabaka wants to be the first new gTLD to launch, but big problems remain

dotShabaka has already signed up Go Daddy and others to carry شبكة., so getting the TLD into the channel is not a problem.

But while Go Daddy will have an Arabic landing page for the TLD it will not have a full Arabic-language registration process and shopping cart ready in time for شبكة.’s planned launch window launch.
It's a shame there wasn't a 12 year long test-bed of 1/2 IDN's so Godaddy could have got their shit together with a multi-lingual domain registration interface, oh, wait...


Good point about Registrars in the target markets not being easily upgraded to the 2013 RAA, allowing the well-connected domain investors to sneak in the side door and grab the good stuff unchallenged. Sort of makes it look like putting the IDN's first turns out to be a serious error by ICANN, end-user-wise.

If I was dotShabaka, I'd be waiting until the Arabic registrars were all on RAA2013 before launching.
