The .com era has shown signs of coming to an end as more than 1,000 new generic top-level domain (gTLD) name suffixes are set to go online, including some written in non-Latin script such as Arabic, BBC reports.
شبكة. - pronounced dot shabaka - has already become active ahead of schedule, with the United Arab Emirates telecoms provider Etisalat announcing that it had started using this new suffix.
"It's monumental, in my opinion, because it means the internet finally speaks in Arabic," Yasmin Omer, general manager of the DotShabaka Registry noted. if I'm an internet user that speaks only Arabic, I don't need to rely on search engines or other pools to get to where I want."
Russian and Mandarin Chinese are also rolling out their own brands of non-Latin script gTLDs such as 游戏, сайт and онлайн.
New English language suffixes will also become available, including .camera, .equipment, .estate, .gallery, .graphics, .lighting and .photography.
