The country’s .rw domain name was registered in October 1996 but has only managed to get over 3,000 subscriptions. However RICTA (an acronym for Rwanda Internet Community and Technology Alliance) has plans to change that.
I was very pleased to learn via a series of tweets this morning of a two-day DNSSEC training seminar that happened in Kacyiru, Rwanda, sponsored by the Rwanda Information and Communication Technology Association (RICTA) in partnership with ICANN. The seminar took place over the last two days and the agenda looks quite good.
The Rwanda Information Communication Technology Association (RICTA) targets to register about 5000 web domain names by 2016, following the re-delegation of Rwanda’s Country Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD), “.rw” from Belgium a couple of months ago.
The Rwanda Information & Communication Technology Association – RICTA would like to inform all esteemed customers who have websites using the domain name .Rw that they should pay the subscription for the year 2014 to ensure that their websites are not shut down.
