Dot bangla domain registration to begin from Dec 16
User-level registration of dot bangla (.bangla) internet domain will begin on December 16, the Victory Day of Bangladesh.

State Minister for Posts and Telecommunications Tarana Halim made the announcement on Tuesday while briefing the press on the registration process.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) on October 5 sent a letter to the government clearing the much-awaited Internationalised Domain Name (IDN) label.

Indian state West Bengal and Sierra Leone, one of whose official languages is Bangla, had also applied for the IDN label - dot bangle in Bangla fonts.

Another ICANN-approved domain label for Bangladesh is dot bd or .bd. According to the BTCL, users have registered 36,500 websites with this domain label.

 These labels work as a state's recognition, for example - dot UK or .uk websites belong to the United Kingdom.

Now .bangla (in Bangla fonts) is Bangladesh's own Unicode domain label. –RH
