The Tunisia Internet Agency has approved the move to introduce its own IDN in arabic script. The تونس TLD has been given the green light by ICANN and will join other non-Latin scipt TLDs from another 13 countries who already offer domain names in their native languages. Recently we’ve seen other Arabic IDNs join the list, including that of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
Tunisia will have to work hard to now put in place the technical infrastructure required, and its Internet Agency has chosen the AFNIC registry to manage the new TLD and ensure that Tunisia can start to enjoy the benefits of the internet more fully.
