Qatar's telecoms regulator has announced plans to launch .doha as a new top-level domain for eligible entities and organizations in Doha to register their websites.

The Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) said the move comes as part of its strategy to boost Qatar's role in the digital economy.

It said in a statement that the Qatar Domains Registry has registered 21,601 domains since its launch in 2011.

Faisal Ali Al-Shuaibi, CRA's spokesman, said: "After facilitating the steady growth in its domain volumes, QDR is now on a fast track to make .doha the dot capital of Qatar on the internet world map".
