Rwanda has more than 100,000, registered business. If each can adopt or register a .RW domain name the country’s digital footprint would increase. To achieve this RICTA has targeted registration of at least 5,000 active .RW domains by the end of 2018. RICTA CEO Nkeramugaba Ghislain reveals how his institution is likely to achieve this, mainly though a campaign targeting Rwandan SMEs, dubbed ‘Doing Business Online’.
RICTA is basically an acronym that means ‘Rwanda Information and Communication Technology Association’ an entity that was formed in 2005 with the objective of managing the .RW country code top level domain and the Rwanda Internet exchange point.
