"We have made a significant investment to ensure that our Domain Name Registry Software is fully compliant with the recently ratified IDNA2008 protocol to support Arabic and all other non-Latin scripts. We now are at the absolute forefront of an internet revolution that will ensure the continued improvement of internet accessibility across all language groups. I am extremely proud to say that our technology will now be supporting three Arabic script Internationalised (IDN) ccTLDs, in addition to five standard ccTLDs from around the world," Mr Kinderis continued.
