The Schmooze

Now You Can Get Hebrew Domain Names

Spelling out Hebrew domain names in English has created some confusion in Israel. As internetnews.com has pointed out, “the Hebrew word for an orange could be spelled out as ‘tapuz,’ ‘tapooz,’ ‘tapoos’ and more,” meaning it’s a challenge to “spell out the Hebrew names of sites in Latin characters.”

Fret no more, Israeli web addicts and domain-name owners. The Hebrew-language site Calcalist, via YNetNews, reports that the Israel Internet Association “has begun an early registration process for website addresses in Hebrew with the “.il” country code. The Hebrew domain names will end in either “.com,” “.net” or “.org” in Hebrew letters, according to internetnews.com. The popular “.co.il” will not be available, the site reports; its use is pending review “by international standards bodies.”
