Georgia will receive top-level country-code domain name

PanARMENIAN.Net - Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will provide Georgia with a “.გე” top-level country-code domain name in non-Latin script, in accordance with ICANN standards, The Domain Times reported.

As Internet Society NGO chairman Igor Mkrtumyan earlier stated in a conversation with PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, “Theoretically, creation of Armenian domains is a feasible, though time-taking procedure. Surveys we conducted among Armenian users prove Armenian domains to be unnecessary,” he said.

The domain name .рф (romanized as rf), the internationalized country code top-level domain in the Domain Name System of the Internet for the Russian Federation, became operational on May 13, 2010.

As of June 2010, four top level domains have been implemented: three using the Arabic alphabet, ‏مصر.‎, ‏السعودية.‎ and ‏امارات.‎ (for Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, respectively), and one using Cyrillic, .рф (for Russia). Five new internationalized country code top-level domains using Chinese characters were approved in June 2010.
