Egypt, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates can now start making online addresses in their native languages, said the global agency overseeing Internet domain names.
The Latin alphabet's three-decade hold on Internet domain names was successfully broken by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
ICANN chief executive and president Rod Beckstrom, "This marks a pivotal moment in the history of Internet domain names. These international names will now allow people to type entire domain names in their own language."
As per ICANN, the four approved countries may urge local language Internet addresses to be placed in a domain names root system that will reach users worldwide by the middle of this year.
For Thursday, sixteen applications were received in eight languages.
A new multilingual address system was approved October by ICANN, which it said would open up the Internet to millions more people worldwide.
The users will be able to write an entire website address in any of the world's language scripts.
