The Rwanda Internet Community and Technology Alliance (RICTA) the Managers of the .RW ccTLD and the Rwanda Internet Exchange point (RINEX) concluded a successfull program for automating all Registrars in Rwanda.

In partnership with the AFTLD Secretariat, RICTA devised a training program and follow up mechanism that ensured that all Registrars are fully automated.

“Today all .RW domain resellers are fully automated meaning that you can use any of the reseller’s platforms to register or renew your domain name from any device of your choice (mobile phone, laptop etc,” said Grace Ingabire, Chief Executive Officer of Rwanda Internet Community and Technology Alliance (RICTA).

The achievement was preceded by a 2019 training workshop for 20 of 27 dot RW accredited resellers.

The training was conducted with the assistance from Africa Top Level Domains Organization (AFTLD) – an association of country code Top Level Domain registry (ccTLD) managers in Africa.

The AFTLD Secretariat officials said that they will continue partnering with RICTA and its stakeholders to ensure the internet community in Rwanda leverages on its country code top-level domain registry.

“We believe this process will result in rapid growth of the dot RW ccTLD Registry as has been the case in other countries that have embraced full automation,” said Barrack Otieno, AFTLD General Manager in a statement sent to KTPress.
