Internet

Africa’s youngest nation has added its voice to the chorus of support for the bid to ensure the African online community is properly represented in cyberspace.

The Republic of South Sudan (RSS) this week became the 39th African country to formally endorse the African Union-endorsed UniForum ZA Central Registry (ZACR) bid to administer the proposed .africa generic Top Level Domain (gTLD).

The African Union Commission (AUC) endorsed the UniForum ZACR bid earlier this year and last week reaffirmed its support at the 44th meeting of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in Prague, Czech Republic.
