Local domains are a first step towards making the web more accessible and relevant for people around the world. The new domain will help people in Somalia and find locally relevant information, faster.

Somalia, googlers now have a gateway to the world's information through their own country domain, www.google.so.

"Google.so will also make it easier for Somali users to access search in their preferred languages - Arabic English, and Somali. Somali is an important African language: beyond its national use in Somalia and Somaliland, it is one of the 5 major languages in Ethiopia, and one of the two languages of Djibouti.

It is also spoken in northern Kenya and increasingly in Nairobi."
