Good morning all
You are doing great Ali :-)
<QUESTION>برأيكم من هي الجهات المسؤولة عن تسويق اسماء النطاقات العربية ؟ وما هي الخطط التسويقية للترويج لاستخدام هذه النطاقات ان وجدت؟</QUESTION>

Hi Ali, you mentioned the registry-registrar model
When can international domain companies apply to become a registrar in .SA and the IDN
<QUESTION>Hi Ali, you mentioned the registry-registrar model. When can international domain companies apply to become a registrar in .SA and the IDN</QUESTION>
In theory, what happens if you tell all your prospective registrants that they can choose from the Unicode characters that pertain ONLY to Arabic, and none from Persian, or a sister script? The prospective Registrant would be deprived of his ability to register a name, because there aren't enough characters in Arabic?
that was a question, please
Understood, thanks Ali!
is there a plan to open domain names registration under .sa for international ?
Thank you Ali
Many thanks Ali !!
Will you share presentations?
Yes Fusen, we intend to post slides and presentations on the ME DNS Forum website https://mednsf.org
Expect them next week; hopefully
Thank you for the question Sivasubramanian. Registrants can register any names as they can use the complete set of Arabic language letters and numbers. Saudi ccTLDs are intended for local personal and businesses and allowing other characters which could cause confusion for users to access websites. There are 26 letters in the Arabic languages and they are all available for registration. Other variants and form of the words are enabled through the interface after registration to allow other languages and international reachability

It is working well here Aicha, check your connection
<QUESTION>are there any tools available for public from your firm to scan websites and identify primary language of the website and if the website offers multilingual version of the website to automate process of identifying sites websites? For example ccTLD operator can use to generate similar statistics for their ccTLD? </QUESTION>
@Alii Alhoshaiyan " There are 26 letters in the Arabic languages and they are all available for registration. " That is good, but you also state that "Other variants and form of the words are enabled", so, it is 26 Arabic characters + more characters from other scripts ???
<COMMENT>.موقع seems missing from the stats</COMMENT>
Siva, just to be clear. The Arabic script includes languages such as Arabic, Farsi (Persian), Urdu, Pashto, Dari… and 100s of other languages that use the Arabic character
Arabic has 26 characters, but other Arabic script languages have characters not used in the Arabic language
Love the picture in this slide @Emily :-)
Je n'ai pas le son ni les slides. je suis triste de rater des info interessantes
Fahd, in that case what may be called the "maximum" Arabic Character set would be the 26 Arabic Characters + those specific characters from related scripts that ARE assimilated into the Arabic script table ?

@Aicha sorry for that. However, slides and recordings will be made available on mednsf.org
Siva, you can learn more from the Arabic script table https://www.icann.org/public-comments/reference-lgrs-second-level-2020-08-24-en

<QUESTION>If I understand the MTA constitue the weak chain link in the EAI evolvement , which MTA componenent constitue the main handicap? </QUESTION>
Thanks much @Emily
<question> how are the IDNs faring with the mail servers?</question>
Thanks for the insightful presentation @Emily
Million thanks Emily !!
Thank you for the link Ali. Please also understand that my question is not really an Arabic question, it is more of an IDN variant question.
Thank you, Emily! Great presentation!
@Chokri and @Tim, we have a session on Universal Acceptance starting at 11.00 AM UTC. You may ask your questions related to MTA, EAI, and mail servers with IDNs.
Thank you for this great initiative and for the quality of the presentations which are both interesting and enriching, thank you very much Fahd, Baher, all the speakers and the entire organization team.
From my computer https://www.icann.org/public-comments/reference-lgrs-second-level-2020-08-24-en shows a site not reached error
Siva, the link works at my end
@Jamel, thank you for your kind comments. We value them.
This site can’t be reachedCheck if there is a typo in www.icann.org.DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN
@siva I’m able to access this URL from my computer
Its loading at my end, maybe the NS can't be reached from your ISPs resolves
I tried the link from my phone on mobile network, it works
Sometimes country to country specific blocking happens unfortunately, like for example github.com blocks developers from Syria because of OFAC banning rules
@Siva use a public resolver on your device
but from my computer on fiber, it doesn't work.. Similar problems have occurred in the past... I can email you some screenshots.
I hope ICANN isn't doing the same and being affected by any US banning rules for countries 😅
@Siva what if you changed your DNS settings on your computer?
Thank you Paul, there were some complications in that too..
When running Google Chrome under a supported desktop environment, the system proxy settings will be used. However, either your system is not supported or there was a problem launching your system configuration.But you can still configure via the command line. Please see man google-chrome-stable for more information on flags and environment variables.
A similar complication occurred in the case of Chrome
In firefox it seemed feasible to say 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199 but I think that also did not work
bandwidth test shows 35 Mbps, Internet working fine, but icann.org does not resolve. Chrome, Ubuntu 20.04 (apologies to all, I wanted to say that a certain link did not work, the conversation expanded)
Thank you Sarmad
شكرا السيد سرمد مداخلة قيمة جدا
Thank you Sarmad.
Many thanks Sarmad !!
<question> how are the IDNs and the mail servers working with respect to the MTA?</question>
But on the Internet, there must be some form of harmonization and standardization, though it is a compromise, we can't possibly be saying, these characters are preferred in Asia, this set of characters in Europe, that in Africa, let's have them all in any case.
