This year, the 3rd Africa DNS forum will be hosted by the Kenya Network Information Center (KENIC), from 6-8 July 2015, at the Sarova Panafric Hotel in Nairobi, under the theme: “The future of Africa’s Domain Name Industry; Opportunities and challenges”.
The Africa DNS Forum is a yearly event organized under the Internet Society Africa Regional Bureau’s ccTLD and DNSSEC program. The main objective of the ccTLD and DNSSEC program is to improve the technical and governance operation levels in African ccTLD registries. A ccTLD study on African registries is also being carried out under the program this year.
The forum which is in its 3rd year following successful forums in Durban, South Africa (2013), and Abuja, Nigeria (2014), is organized in partnership with the Africa Top Level Domain (AFTLD) and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
The Africa DNS Forum brings together ccTLD registries, registrars, and stakeholders from Africa and around the world to share, learn, interact and discuss ways of how the African Domain Name Space can be improved.
