Domain Name Registrar and Web Host Web4Africa to Offer '.RW' Domains
Domain name registrar and web host Web4Africa has been given the go-ahead to offer '.RW' domain names to its global customer base. Established in 2002, Web4Africa is an ICANN accredited domain name provider with global headquarters in Randburg, Gauteng, South Africa. Alongside domain name registration it offers web hosting and specializes in colocation, dedicated servers, and Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting.

The ‘.RW’ extension is the Internet country code top-level domain for the Republic of Rwanda (Rwanda) in eastern Africa. Permission to offer the domain was granted by the Rwanda Internet Community and Technology Alliance (RICTA) - a not-for-profit organization formed in 2005 to manage the '.RW' country code top-level domain, and the Rwanda Internet Exchange Point. RICTA is a member of Nominet and accredited by NiRA, NiC-NA, ZACR, and other ccTLD registries. The organization supports the interests of the Rwandan internet community. Launching the domain is key to Rwandan domain name resellers expanding their businesses and the move underscores RICTA’s commitment to Africa.

“Just like a storefront window, we know that a good domain creates awareness and attract customers,” suggested a RICTA representative. “It boosts search engine ranking, and as companies like us scale up our website through quality content, this domain name becomes more recognizable and top of search engines like Google. We have invested extensively in our own best in class web hosting infrastructure. These include enterprise-grade dedicated servers, networking equipment as well as our own dual-stack multi-homed autonomous internet protocol network. Our setup is resilient and capable of delivering web traffic rapidly and securely,” the representative concluded.
