ICANN Releases New Top-Level Domains for the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Russian Federation


In May 2010 the first four non-Latin script top-level country code domains (IDN ccTLD) went live in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Russian Federation. This means instead of converting those country names to Latin characters, as in .ru for the Russian Federation, companies and individuals can register domains in native language characters including the top level domain such as . in the case of the Russian Federation. The other ccTLDs include United Arab Emirates . ; (Emarat), Egypt . (Misr) and Saudi Arabia . (Al-Saudiah).
