KeNIC introduces new .KE second level domain names.

The Kenya Network Information Centre (KeNIC) is a non-profit organization responsible for the management of Kenya’s .KE Country Code Top Level Country Domains (ccTLDs) as well as .KE Second Level Domains (SLDs). In the news yesterday, KeNIC launched three new SLDs in a move to increase uptake of .KE domain names. The new SLDs are as follows:

  • .me.ke – for personal web sites/blogs
  • .mobi.ke – for mobile web sites
  • .info.co.ke – for information web sites

To note on the new SLDs is that .me.ke domain names will cost only Kes. 500.00 per annum. As well as launching the new SLDs which will supplement the existing SLDs (i.e. co.ke, .or.ke, .go.ke, .ac.ke, ne.ke and .sc.ke) KeNIC has also announced the launch of a new automated registry system for the registration and management of .KE domain names in Kenya. The new registry system will be more flexible, scalable and extensible for KeNIC registrars.

    I think KeNIC is one of the institutions that have been doing a good work worth emulating across the ICT industry in Kenya. The institution is quite responsive to the sector’s DNS management needs. We have really come a long way – from sending a specially coded txt file to one Randy Bush in some distant side of the world to register or modify .ke domains.

    I stand corrected by in my view it might help to guide prospective registrations by providing the statitics of the number of domains by the vairous listed registrars. The statitics provided already such as having 12,064 domains in the generic category and 12,757 in the restricted category is quite useful.
