Domains have been in the news a lot recently. Previously ICANN announced that customisable domains will shortly be available, such as .bbc or .designaweb for a hefty sum.
Countries such as Egypt and Japan do not typically use the internet standardised Latin characters. This means that confusion arises when navigating to URLs which up until now were only available in Latin Text. So ICANN are talking about introducing non-Latin domains, which can be constructed in the letter style of any country. This includes the formatting for right to left Arabic typing.
This will lead to less confusion as before translation to Latin Characters could lose meaning or effectiveness. Local businesses will also feel far more unique to their region; it’s arguable that a good domain can make a website.
