(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroon reduces the price for ‘.cm’ domain names (Cameroon’s country code domain extension). Previously registered at CFA130,000 yearly, they are now CFA7,000.
This was revealed by Ebot Ebot Enaw, director of the national ICT agency. The official further explains that many people do not know where they can register ‘.cm’ domain names and some do not even know the price.
In that regard, the agency launched a promotion campaign to explain the advantages of such domain names and how it can be registered.
Let’s note that in 2016, about 53,500 websites were registered under the ‘.cm’ extensions according to the agency. At the time, experts indicated that the main barrier was the price which was really high. Since then it has been greatly lowered.
