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.
