Arab internet addresses soon

The arabic lettered domain names for Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were added to the internet's master directories this week. It's the first major change to the internet domain name system since its creation in the 1980s.

Registrations for websites to use those names are to begin soon. Egypt granted three companies approval to register names using the country's new Arabic suffix. Websites had to end their addresses with ".com" or another string using Latin characters. This means that Arab businesses and government agencies still had to use Latin characters on billboards and advertisements, even if they were targeting populations with no familiarity with English.
