About DCA

DotConnectAfrica

DotConnectAfrica (DCA) is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization incorporated in Mauritius Africa, with Reg ID. CT8710DCA90.

DotConnectAfrica Mission:

To sponsor, establish and operate a regional internet namespace with global recognition and regional significance, dedicated to the needs of the Pan-African and African community.

To reinvest surpluses in socio-technological advancement initiatives relevant to the Pan-Africa and African community; and to operate under a viable not-for-profit initiative that is a technically advanced, world-class TLD registry for the Pan-Africa and African community.

DotConnectAfrica Objective:

DotConnectAfrica is to be the Sponsoring Organization and Registry Operator for the .Africa sponsored Generic Top Level Domain.

Africa has developed into a global force in the international commercial, political and cultural Network. The .Africa domain aspires to embrace this dynamism in the African Country to become a nucleus, intersection and breeding ground for Internet activity and development in the region.

DotConnectAfrica is trying to unite Africans so that they can do great things.

Moctar Yedaly, head of information society for the African Union Commission, said the commission's vision for the .africa domain went beyond the commercial.

"It may well be a very good business in terms of money generating. If it may generate some revenue we can use for the development of ICT in Africa, then that is all very good, but that's not my primary goal," he said. "My primary goal is to ensure the identity of Africa, the image, the culture are well-maintained."

Africa has so much potential, and is underachieving. DotConnectAfrica could potentially be promoting small businesses in Africa, helping them reach new heights, "Raising an underachieving society."

The brilliant Ethiopian, Sophia Bekele, one of the brains behind DotConnectAfrica discusses the vision
