UAE’s Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) has launched the ‘Name Ideas’ initiative that supports the user to choose a UAE domain name for websites through a ChatGPT- supported mechanism.

This initiative is the first of its kind, where the entrepreneur can obtain a suitable domain name for his business by simply submitting a simplified description of the commercial activity for which they want to find a local domain name.

According to the statement, “Owners of SMEs often face the problem of finding a domain name that expresses their activity in order to promote and reach the widest segment of customers. The ‘Name Ideas’ initiative solves this problem, as the description of the activity is provided in either Arabic, English or even in the local dialect.”

Then, it is analyzed based on the AI algorithms and a list of proposed domain names is prepared. The service automatically checks the availability of each name at TDRA before displaying the list to the applicant. In the end, the applicant gets a list of proposed names that meet two vital conditions: availability and suitability.

“The service does not stop at this point. The applicants can register the domain name of their choice immediately by choosing an accredited domain registrar from the displayed list, and then click on the registrar’s registration page to complete the transaction in a few minutes,” as per the reports.

Commenting on this initiative, Mr. Talal Humaid Belhoul, Chairman of TDRA’s Board of Directors, said that “the application of ChatGPT comes in implementation of the directives of the wise leadership to explore the horizons of this technology and its implications for government work, as it represents a growing phenomenon in our era, which is the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, where emerging technologies have created a new reality that requires us to keep exploring potential horizons and leverage them to provide advanced and unprecedented services that add distinctive value to the customer journey.”

“We at TDRA, based on our role in overseeing digital transformation, and in line with the wise leadership’s directives, have a comprehensive plan to employ emerging technologies, including ChatGPT, and today we announce “Name Ideas” the first UAE initiative in this field, which targets entrepreneurs, owners of innovative business ideas, and new investors,” Mr. Humaid Belhoul added.
