dotAfrica domains now available for public registration

The general public can now register dotAfrica geographic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) according to ZACR CEO, Lucky Masilela.

During the Sunrise Phase of the dotAfrica launch, registered trademark owners were allowed to apply for .africa domain names. The second launch phase, being Landrush saw brand owners, businesses and the general public registering premium domains under the .africa gTLD.

The domain enjoys the support of the African Union Commission (AUC) and an overwhelming majority of African governments.

According to Masilela the new dotAfrica gTLD enables the acquisition of valuable online real-estate in a fast-growing and high-potential market.

It also enables individuals and organisations to showcase their brands while establishing a home for Africa-specific products and services.

“Initiatives like dotAfrica help harness the power of new technologies to solve old problems and grow value for the continent through the dotAfrica Foundation. dotAfrica is unique in that it gives Africans that important sense of pride and identity at the same time motivates them to achieve the very best for their continent and themselves.”

“ZACR petitions all Africans in particular and the world at large to take ownership of dotAfrica during General Availability as this new domain truly belongs to us all,” Masilela said.
