Welcome to the dotHalal project!

What is a generic top-level domain?
The characters after the dot (.) in a website name is the generic top-level domain or domain name suffix (e.g., .com). The top-level domain helps to describe the type and content of a given website. This means you will soon have www.yourstore.halal instead of www.yourstore.com.

The need for dotHalal.


Avoiding harmful web content.
The Internet is a double-edge sword, which houses both favorable and unfavorable content. Prior to visiting a some websites, our children, brothers and sisters often have no way to determine whether the content of a website contains permissible or harmful content. The .halal domain name suffix or generic top-level domain will ensure that a website contains permissible content. Help us protect our families and make this project a reality. Donate today!


Time is of the essence.
"ICANN will soon begin a global campaign to tell the world about this dramatic change in Internet names and to raise awareness of the opportunities afforded by new gTLDs. Applications for new gTLDs will be accepted from 12 January 2012 to 18 April 2012."

“In the last seven years, we have been working with ICANN to sponsor the dotHalal generic top-level domain.”
