Australia wins key Omani internet contract

The Oman Daily Observer reports that AusRegistry International has been awarded the contract to establish Oman’s Domain Name Registry Service by the country’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA).

It reports that the TRA selected the Australian company at the conclusion of a global open tender process, finding AusRegistry International to be “a global leader in the Domain Name Registry Software industry”.

The new domain name hierarchy will incorporate both the existing ‘.om’ identifier and the planned عمان (.oman) using Arabic script.
