Arab speaking countries are leading the charge into web addresses in non-Latin script, as ICANN, the Internet regulator, has opened up the Internet to non-Latin script web addresses for the first time.

Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are the first three nations to have ‘country codes’ in Arabic script. Over twenty countries have requested approval for international domain names from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

“For the first time in the history of the Internet, non-Latin characters are being used for top-level domains. The first IDN country-code top-level domains were inserted in the DNS root zone earlier today,” according to a statement on ICANN’s website.

The international domain names (IDNs) may not work immediately on all computers, according to ICANN.
