Iraq Gets Another Website Domain

The new top-level domain ".krd" gives Iraqi Kurdish speakers a news space in the virtual world at a time when they are gaining on the ground against the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group.
The Kurds were granted the ".krd" domain name in 2013, through ICANN, the Internet's registration website, a US-based non-profit organization that manages Internet addresses, but it is only coming into effect recently, according to Yahoo.
It is a "generic" name, not a two-letter "country code" name reserved for sovereign states, according to one Iraqi official.
In an official complaint to ICANN, Iran cited the risk of "serious political conflicts" and concern about the problems resulting from creation of the new gTLD (generic top-level domain) .KRD.
In a statement from Iran, the government said some of the radical Kurdish communities have recently started a movement pushing for the creation of a Kurdish nation state that is aimed at separation of Kurdish lands from Iran and Turkey.
"The government of the Islamic Republic of Iran is seriously concerned about these movements," it said.
