Status: Proposed
Language: Arabic
Translates to: transliteration of "COM"
Manager: Verisign
Registry Provider: Verisign
Type: IDN
Category: Commerce
Priority #: 101

كوم.is one of 9 transliteration of .com that Verisign has applied for via ICANN's New gTLD Program. The company also applied for 3 transliterations of .net.[1]

This particular application was criticized during the comment period of the new gTLD program given that no such "COM" word exists in Arabic and so Verisign is essentially inventing an Arabic word. The objection states that Verisign should not be given the TLD without approval of the Arabic Language Academy.[2]
