The launch of a new Arabic gTLD موقع.
The debut of the new Arabic domain name mawqe (.موقع) is based on a study covered behaviors and vocabulary used by the overwhelming majority of the people living in this part of the globe.

Actually, the English equivalent to this buzzword is Website. It is unquestionable that the people speaking languages based on the Arabic letter like Urdu, Parisian, Arabic and Kurdish have spread out the use of this buzzword with the same meaning in their mind to Website, which has sneaked its way to TV and Radio shows and jargons of thousands of newscasters and advertisers.etc when saying “for more information, please visit our website.
