Getting an Internet domain name in English is pass, now get ready to have it in your own regional language.

Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), Non-Profit Corporation with the responsibility for Internet’s Domain Name System (DNS) management worldwide, has been on the job to support domain names in numerous languages spoken in India, including the 22 scheduled languages of the country.

“Work is on for nine Indian scripts – Bengali, Devanagari, Gujarati, Gurmukhi, Kannada, Malayalam, Oriya, Tamil and Telugu. These scripts are expected to cover many different local languages,” ICANN India head Samiran Gupta told PTI.

ICANN has been working towards building rules for secure and stable definition of top-level domains for scripts used globally, so that people with no knowledge of English are able to go online and access websites with domain names completely in their languages.

For example, one can enter Domain in Hindi to get Hindi content, instead of typing a domain name in English for this purpose, which is the current practice.

About 52 per cent of world population have access to Internet now and ICANN is contributing towards bridging digital divide, he added.

He further stated that,”Many of the remaining 48 per cent are non-English speaking people and those who do not have the ability to type in English. The work will allow domain names to be available for these people in their languages”.

When asked that searching content in regional languages is already possible in Google and other search engines, he said the current effort is focused on enabling the domain names in regional languages, which in turn would enable the system to publish local language content being searched.

Currently there are 4.2 billion Internet users globally which may rise to 5 billion by 2022, Gupta said.
