54 African countries united under single domain name

It is now possible to own an Internet address or domain name with the .africa (dot africa) extension and already more than 8000 brands and companies as well as individuals, have registered for the .africa Internet address

54 African countries are now united under a single domain name that extends to the entire continent and is seen as  one of the most important initiatives of Africa in the last twenty years.

Organisations, including banks and media companies currently register domain names .africa.

dotAfrica (.africa) is the new generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) for the African continent. It is an opportunity to forge a unique online identity which will associate your products, services and/or information with the continent and people of Africa.

According to Lucky Masilela, CEO of ZACR, the non-profit corporation which administers the new domain .africa, "Continental and international leading brands are adopting domain names with the extension .africa because they realise the importance of being associated with the bright future for Africa. Initiatives like .africa help leverage new technologies to solve old problems. The .africa extension is unique because it gives Africans a sense of pride very important to encourage them to make every effort for the good of the continent and of themselves."

Domain names with the extension .africa are now available and everyone can register: .
