ICANN and The Arab ICT Organization (AICTO) are jointly organizing this webinar about the Universal Acceptance of Arabic Domain Names and Email addresses.
Universal Acceptance is a foundational requirement for a truly multilingual Internet, it will enable the Internet users using the Arabic script to navigate the web and exchange email messaging using in own language. It is also the key to unlocking the potential of new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) to foster competition, consumer choice and innovation in the domain name industry. To achieve Universal Acceptance, Internet applications and systems must treat all TLDs in a consistent manner, including new gTLDs and internationalized TLDs. Specifically, they must accept, validate, store, process and display all domain names.
