The history and identity of Queen Arwa University on the Internet and the stages of development since 1998 - 2021
"The first Yemeni university on the Internet"
Queen Arwa University was established and has practiced its educational activities since the beginning of the year 1996 AD, and it received many local and international students and faculty members, and it formed one of the most important institutions of private higher education in that era. Within the activities of students and the practical application of study materials, a group of students created the first website and was interested in introducing about The university, its news, its most important faculties and departments, and many of the services that we see as primitive at the present time, but it was a successful project that won everyone’s admiration. The university project as an official website representing the activity of Queen’s University on the Internet The website was officially launched and published on the Internet from the beginning of the year 1998 AD and it was the first Yemeni university to launch its website on the Internet and obtained a good evaluation and membership with UNESCO at the time
The beginning of the work from the date of 10-02-1998 AD
A first site programmed in simple HTML and does not contain a database that stores information, and it used to keep news and articles in text notes that are saved in the site file
The link was not fully proprietary and was a file with a name representing the university (arwauniversity) uploaded to the space and server of the TeleYemen International Communications Company (y.net.ye) domain. http://www.y.net.ye/arwauniversity
On January 06, 2004
The university began to pay great attention to exclusivity and obtaining a field dedicated to full ownership in its name, activity and national identity. At that time, work was done to reserve a site that begins with a name denoting the university (arwauniversity) and an abbreviation that shows institutional activity and type of work (edu) and ends with the Yemeni electronic identity (ye). http://www.arwauniversity.edu.ye/
On August 08, 2007 AD
A website has been reserved that contains the full name of the university (queenarwauniversity), the activity it represents (edu), and the Yemeni identity (ye), and work in this field only lasted for one year for experimental purposes, and the previous link continued:- http://www.queenarwauniversity.edu.ye
We have moved to the website, which represents the abbreviation of the university name in English (qau), the type and activity of the institution (edu), and in short the field that represents the Yemeni identity (ye). https://www.qau.edu.ye
On January 10, 2010 AD:
A link was obtained with the name of the university within the international domain assigned to organizations and social institutions (org) and the name assigned to the university was (arwauuniversity). http://www.arwauniversity.org
The university has started work on the link that the domain name has the abbreviation for the name of the university (QAU)
It ends with the name of the international domain that represents the Yemeni identity (.ye).
Without any addition that represents the type and activity of the site for the purpose of distinguishing it with a short link that directly detains its area from the main area. http://www.qau.ye
Work is still going on with this link, which has redirected the old links by 90,%, mechanism and we are working hard to restore the international level and ranking of the university site that you should be in, which has declined during the last period due to the movement between links and different fields that represented the university in the periods described in the history shown The top of each article shows the specific link to the university's website at that time.
Recently, we were alerted to the need to return to the university field, which contains the Yemeni educational identity and work with it, and a bold decision was taken to adopt the link to the website shown as follows: https://www.qau.edu.ye
Starting from the beginning of May 2020, in order to complete the local and international quality standards in carrying the educational identity in addition to the state identity and the short name of the university.
Unfortunately, we, Queen Arwa University, were not successful in obtaining the international link dedicated to educational institutions and bodies (.EDU), which could have been obtained in the first years of the founding year, i.e. before the year 2001, because access to this field was restricted from the American administration and it was limited The accredited and qualified American institutions have to set complex conditions, the most important of which is that the applicant must work in the United States of America, or that the owner be an American.....etc.
The last attempt to apply for the qau.edu link was during the year 2020 of this, and the response to us from those in charge of the service was that we would like to serve you and meet your request, and we are eagerly awaiting the amendment of the policy for obtaining this field issued by the US administration.
