AfTLD logoInterested in learning about the state of the Domain Name System (DNS) in Africa?  As I mentioned previously, I’m in Durban, South Africa, for the next week for the Africa DNS Forum today and tomorrow and then ICANN 47 next week.  The first Africa DNS Forum is happening right now and you can watch live now:

The Africa DNS Forum agenda is posted on the AfTLD website and includes these topics:

  • Trends, opportunities and challenges of the DNS industry
  • Registries Business: Registry Strategies for domain name growth
  • Registrar business: Registrar strategies in a competitive environment
  • Legal Issues: Cross-border domain registrations
  • Registrar Accreditation and accreditation in a borderless environment
  • Governments and ccTLD: Supporting the domain name growth

The sessions are happening today, July 12, 2013, from 8:30 – 17:30 and tomorrow, July 13, from 9:00 – 14:00.  South Africa Standard Time is UTC+2 which is currently the same time as Central European Summer Time and 6 hours ahead of US Eastern time.

Related to our work here at Deploy360, there will be a section of the first panel on Registries Business that will be focused on DNSSEC and how usage can be accelerated for ccTLDs in Africa. I’m looking forward to hearing the presentations and discussions happening over these next two days – many great and exciting things are happening for the Internet in Africa right now!
