Gabon provides dot GA domain names for free

Wednesday 4 September 2013 | 12:43 CET | News
Gabon's My GA Registry has opened up registration for dot GA domains. It is operated by the Agence Nationale des Infrastructures Numeriques et des Frequences (ANINF), which pledges to make this national resource as open and easy to use as any generic Top Level Domain, while carrying the Gabonese identity on the internet. Free domain names will be offered to all internet users in Gabon and in other countries as of now. There will be no restrictions to registrations of free domains and anyone can claim their own .GA domain.
