UCL signed an agreement with ICANN in 2012 to provide expertise to enable internet users to create full web addresses using non-Latin script names. ICANN – the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which coordinates the Internet’s addressing system – has initiated the change which will open up an entirely new way of using the Internet. UCL is working with ICANN to evaluate applications for new generic Top Level Domain addresses. As a result of the New generic Top Level Domain Program there will be new addresses in non-Latin script based scripts such as Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, Japanese and Russian.
