'.Africa’ signing ceremony held at ICANN 49

Finally, a signing ceremony for the .Africa has been dotted between the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) at the ongoing ICANN 49 in Singapore on Wednesday, March 2014, reports ITRealms.

The ceremony conducted between Akram Atallah, the president of ICANN's Global Domains Division (GDD) and Lucky Masilela, CEO of ZA Central Registry (ZACR) took part in a symbolic signing, which allows the new Generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) ‘.Africa’ to proceed to delegation.

ITRealms also reports that this marks the first Registry Agreement signed between ICANN and an African gTLD registry operator.

A contingency representing the African Union Commission (AUC), dotAfrica, and ZADNA (domain name authority of South Africa) were in attendance, as well as several ZACR and ICANN staff members.
