The .africa name will create an exclusive presence for Africa on the internet. It provides a regional identity for businesses, organizations and individuals so they may display their association to Africa. Africa has developed into a global force in the international commercial, political and cultural network. The .africa domain aspires to embrace this dynamism in the African Country to become a nucleus, intersection and breeding ground for Internet activity and development in the region. DotConnectAfrica (DCA) is to be the Sponsoring Organization and Registry Operator for the .africa gTLD.
Africa being the world's second largest continent in the world is known for its beautiful environments, exotic wildlife and diverse cultures but also has some of the poorest nations, cpr144449003101 largest populations, and harshest living conditions in the world. The new .africa domain could potentially benefit African economy by encouraging website creation, domain registrations and overall African internet usage.
