The UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has announced that the number of registrations on the national .ae domain increased over the last six months reaching 121,320.

“This increase provides hard evidence that the prevalence of Arabic e-content is indeed rising. The significant increment indicates to the wider spread on Arabic content on the web, which is one of the main strategic goals of the UAE,” said the TRA on its press release.

Mohamed Nasser Al Ghanim, Director General of TRA said: "This significant increment in the number of registrations on the national domain .ae is an indication to the quality of this service, and its amplified importance in helping registered companies reach out to a wider targeted community, according to the nature of business. We are confident that the demand rates for registration with the national domains will maintain gaining more momentum, due to its capacity to meet the users’ needs, and its role to keep Intellectual Property Rights.”
