Abu Dhabi Launches An Internet Domain Name

Abu Dhabi Digital Authority has launched an internet domain name to promote the capital on the international stage.

The new online domain – .abudhabi – will be accessible to all citizens, residents and employers working in and outside Abu Dhabi.

“We are very pleased with our adoption of the “.abudhabi” domain, which highlights the fact that the Emirate of Abu Dhabi is proceeding with confidence and speed in the process of digital transformation," said Dr Mohamed Al Askar, director general of Abu Dhabi Digital Authority.

Dr Al Askar said the new domain name would help to shape the digital future of the capital.

“This initiative contributes to elevating the UAE’s Global Innovation Index status and promotes Abu Dhabi in the tourist, cultural and economic arenas through this distinctive domain name, an attractive factor for companies interested in business opportunities and local and international events and fairs hosted annually by Abu Dhabi," Dr Al Askar said.

To date, more than 550 names have been successfully registered to the “.abudhabi” domain, with the number growing daily.
