Arabic DotShabaka Website Suffix Goes Live

Dubai telecom firm Etisalat has already adopted the new web ending.

DotShabaka, the Arabic website address ending, has become the first new internet suffix to go live.

Dubai telecom firm Etisalat has already adopted the new web ending شبكة. – DotShabaka in English – meaning ‘web’ in Arabic.

Over 1,000 new generic top-level domain (gTLD) suffixes are due to be released in a bid to ease overcrowding of the internet’s current system.

The DotShabaka Registry, the Dubai-based business running the شبكة. gTLD, believes the new suffix will benefit Arabic speakers who do not speak another English.

Users will now be able to navigate directly to Arabic sites without having to use search engines.

While DotShabaka is the first top-level suffix in Arabic, country code evel domains have been used in Jordan and Saudi Arabia since 2010.
