Deal all,


For a successful AFRALO/AfrICANN meeting in Brussels, it’s necessary to form
an organizing committee to take care of the logistical and organizational


AFRALO has already 3 volunteers. Is it possible to have 3 other volunteers
from AfrICANN? 

We are planning to have a conference call next week, so it would be very
appreciated if we can have the committee formed by the end of this week.




Chersz tous


Pour le succès de la réunion conjointe AFRALO/AfrICANN à Bruxelles, la
constitution d’un comité d’organisation est nécessaire pour s’occuper des
aspects logistiques et organisationnels.


AFRALO a déjà 3 volontaires pour ce comité. Est-il possible d’avoir 3 autres
volontaires d’AfrICANN ?

Nous projetons d’avoir une téléconférence la semaine prochaine, et il serait
très apprécié de voir le dit comité d’organisation constitué à la fin de
cette semaine.


Bonne nuit

Subject: [ISOC] PRESS RELEASE: Ghana Dot Com Accredited as ICANN Registrar

of Domain Names



For Immediate Release

Ghana Dot Com Accredited as ICANN

Registrar of Domain Names


Accra, Ghana 18 May, 2010. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and

Numbers (ICANN) has accredited a Ghanaian company Ghana Dot Com LTD as

accredited Registrar of domain names in the generic Top Level Domain

(gTLD) names registries. The accreditation enables Ghana Dot Com to

register names into gTLD registries including .com, .org,.net, .info and

to host websites for these domain names. Domain names are symbolic name

references to information resources on the Internet commonly known as

websites that run on servers.


Ghana.COM whose headquarters is located at East Legon, Accra Ghana is a

descendant company of the Internet pioneering company Network Computer

Systems (NCS) and today became the third company in Africa to receive the

accreditation and joins Internet Solutions of South Africa and Kheweul of



Ghana.COM aims to bring more people into the community of websites and

providers of information services. Africa and in particular Ghana stand to

benefit by having an alternate avenue for acquiring generic domain names

closer to them for their personal or business information needs. Ghana.COM

expects to be multi currency and accept payments in convertible currencies

in the region and for example customers in Ghana may pay for services in

Ghana Cedis and likewise for CFA regions


The business venture aims to increase content and transactional web

services in Africa by making domain names more readily available in our



"This accreditation is a welcomed opportunity for Ghana.COM to globally

offer domain name registration and web hosting services. We hope that this

venture will present a platform for hosting more localized content and in

local languages to develop the African information resource market.

Ghana.COM plans to be Registrar also for country code  top level domain

(ccTLD) registries in Africa including .GH, .NG and others, which will

further grow domain name market in Africa


We note that the lack of financial instruments in Africa has been the

principal challenge of registrars which when managed can boost the

information economy. Ghana.COM looks to its native innovative eCommerce

payment processing eCash framework to reach out to non-traditional payment

methods and bring new domain name registrants into the market" says Prof.

Nii Quaynor, Chairman of Ghana Dot Com


It is a widely held view that content in Africa is rather poor and Ghana

Dot Com is counting on enabling content providers by making domain names

available and hosting easy. The Internet technical community continues its

advancement by working directly in the market and practically building

self sustaining info-structures. Ghana.Com will leverage the Internet

pioneering expertise of NCS, in system characterization, integration and

ecommerce as a response
