Africa Domain Name System Forum To Hold in Durban

In an attempt to establish a platform for the Domain Name System community across Africa and to advance the domain name industry and domain name registrations on the continent, a DNS Forum is set to hold on 12 - 13 July 2013 in Durban, South Africa.

According to a report on African Press Organization, the DNS Forum will foster cross-border collaboration between registries, registrars, registrants, DNS experts, Government representatives, and policy makers. Topics covered during the 1 ½ day event include trends, opportunities, and challenges of the DNS industry; strategies for registries and registrars; legal issues with cross-border domain registrations; ways Governments can support domain name growth; and benefits of standardizing accreditation to attract more cross-border registrars and registrations.

“The Internet Society’s African Regional Bureau has been working to strengthen the ccTLDs in Africa by improving sustainability, encouraging the implementation of automation solutions at ccTLDs, and promoting the use of technology such as DNSSEC at registries,” APO quoted Dawit Bekele, Internet Society Regional Bureau Director for Africa.
