UAE's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) said on Tuesday that the domain extension .ae has crossed over 200,000 domain name registrations.

The figure reflects a growth rate of over 14 percent compared to the latest report issued by TRA in December 2015, where the number of registrants were 175,000.

"The UAE national domain maintains the lead with regards to the number of registrants in the Arab world. This reflects the companies, business sector and the customers' confidence in the provided services, and its positive impact on their commercial activity," said Majid Sultan Al Mesmar, acting director general, TRA.

"For achieving customer happiness and continuous upgrade in the quality of provided services, the registration process is distinctive by its simple procedures, and the availability of short and attractive names. Additionally, registration process can now be completed through smart devices during very short time without the need to sign the required documents or to attend in person," he said.

The registration process is very simple and does not take more than 3 minutes, given that accredited registrars are competing to provide services with the highest standards, including smart applications and online registration.

The national Domain Administration Department (.aeAD), the regulatory body and registry operator for the .ae domain, a subsidiary of TRA, is mandated to manage the national domain.

It has also established the new framework, which comprises an administrative structure, clarifying the roles in the sector, to guarantee a sustainable growth of the namespace and promoting competition by accrediting multiple .ae registrars.
