Top Ten Africa Domain Name System (DNS) players have been honoured at the on-going 47 public meeting of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in Durban.

Chairman of the African Domain Name Awards 2013, Dr. Nii Quaynor gave the names of the nominees to include seven registries and three registrars.

He listed these nominees to include Registries .TZ, .NA, .ZA, .SN, .TN, .BI, and .TD, while three registrars namely the Afriregister, Kheweul.com, and Diamatrix CC.

The awards were presented to the winners by the leadership of ICANN including ICANN chairman, Dr. Stephen Crocker, its president, Mr. Fadi Chehade and Ms Susan.

ITRealms recalls that a domain name registrar is an organization or commercial entity that manages the reservation of Internet domain names, according to Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia. 

Though they are usually accredited by a generic top-level domain (gTLD) registry and/or a country code top-level domain (ccTLD) registry.  The management is done in accordance with the guidelines of the designated domain name registries and to offer such services to the public.

On the other hand, a domain name registry is a database of all domain names and the associated registrant information in the top level domains of the Domain Name System (DNS) of the Internet that allow third party entities to request administrative control of a domain name. Most registries operate on the top-level and second-level of the DNS.
