Committees agree on a law for ‘.lb’ domain name

Thursday, August 30, 2018

The joint parliamentary committees Thursday agreed on a law that would regulate the country’s domain name and introduce a new domain level, during a session held at Parliament. “The law, titled Law 79, would allow an entity to regulate the use of the Lebanese domain name. ... It would also allow Lebanon to gain a top level domain name: ‘.lb,’” caretaker Minister of State for Administrative Development Inaya Ezzeddine told The Daily Star.

“The chosen entity” that regulates the domain can either be the government, a private company or an NGO.

The committees had agreed upon an electronic transactions and personal data draft law during a session a month prior, but fell short of approving the article that would allow Lebanon to gain an official country domain name.
