    Egypt Partakes in Fifth Africa DNS Forum

    Date published: 25 July 2017
    Egypt, represented by the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA), will participate in the fifth Africa Domain Name System (DNS) Forum, organized by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), in partnership with the Internet Society (ISOC) and the Africa Top Level Domains Organization (AFTLD). Hosted by the Tanzania Network Information Centre (tzNIC), the Forum will take place in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on July 26-28.

    The objective of this annual event is to bring together interested parties from Africa and world experts in the field to share experiences and update the audience on new developments in the domain industry on both  global and regional levels.

    The forum topics—covered during panel discussions—will include securing the African DNS, legal issues affecting African registries, registrars and resellers, Internet Protocol Version (6IPv6) deployment, and emerging trends in the DNS industry.

    By holding the forum in different parts of Africa, ICANN aims to provide equal opportunities to regional stakeholders, inform the continent's different communities about the domain industry and engage with attendees on how best to strengthen Africa's digital presence.

    NTRA participation in the Forum is significant to preserve Egypt's leading role in this African organization and Egypt's strategic position in Africa. This is in addition to having the opportunity of interacting with ICANN leaders and industry experts on recent developments and trends in the domain industry and discussing various commercial, technical and political aspects of the domain industry.

    ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation and a community with participants from all over the world. ICANN mission is to help ensure a stable, secure and unified global Internet. It assumes, mainly, the responsibility of distributing the fields of addresses in the IP, allocating the protocol identifiers and managing the record system of Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) and Country Code Top-Level Domain (ccTLD).
