ICANN has initiated an in-depth study of the DNS ecosystem in Africa.
The study will identify the strengths and weaknesses in the DNS system in each country in Africa and will develop recommendations on how to advance the industry and bring it closer to the opportunities available. In simple words, to study the industry and then to advise how the industry can profitably grow. ICANN has engaged the Southern African Communications Forum (SACF) to carry out the study. They in turn, have assembled a team with deep experience of the African Internet environment.
In order to make this baseline study a success, we will require your input as set out below. This will help us to help you expand the domain name market in Africa for our collective benefit.
