Press Release: Follow the Litigation process: DCA vs ICANN & ZACR.

Billed as “Reveal Day”, 13 June 2012 is the day that UniForum SA, trading as Registry.Africa, is now officially acknowledged as the only Registry Operator bidding for the .africa TLD. If successful UniForum will be allocating names to the public such as “example.africa”.

Another bidder, DotConnectAfrica Trust, has surprisingly applied for the .dotafrica TLD. This means, should they be successful, they will be allocating names such as "example.dotafrica".  

Earlier this year, the African Union Commission (AUC) selected UniForum SA as the preferred applicant for .africa due to their commitment to  transparency and their track record of reliability, technical ability, financial stability and continental representation.

As early as the first quarter of 2013, ICANN will announce whether UniForum SA has been successful in its bid for the continent’s own TLD.
