ICANN Approves Russia’s Application for Establishment of a Cyrillic Domain
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) overseeing Internet domain names on Thursday said Egypt, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates can begin creating online addresses in their native languages.
Interested parties could file such requests starting from November 16, 2009, when ICANN announced the launch of the IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process enabling non-English speakers across the globe to access Internet addresses in their own language.
ICANN was formed in 1998. It is a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with participants from all over the world dedicated to keeping the Internet secure, stable and interoperable. It promotes competition and develops policy on the Internet’s unique identifiers.
