Africa finally has a domain name (.africa) and you can soon purchase oneThe aim for .africa is to “foster relationship within the continent and portray Africa as an internet community”. Africans will be able to connect better with the world, by businesses being able to create their website.

This achievement was not attained without its fair share of legal battles.
