“It is important that local businesses understand the benefits of registering with the .ae domain name. The dotcom space is currently saturated and by using .ae businesses will be afforded with a larger choice of potential names for their website. It also allows customer to be immediately aware of the location,” said Mohammad Al Zarooni, Acting Executive Director Policies and Program in the TRA.
