RICTA Rwanda, on February 9, welcomed Web4Africa, an ICANN Accredited Registrar from South Africa, as its newest member of RW local registrars. The move is crucial for domain name resellers and web developers looking to expand their businesses and ICT in Rwanda.
A domain name is a text-based name used to identify an internet space. It can have multiple services such as a website, a mail service, etc. associated and/or built onto it.
A representative of the Web4Africa said the accreditation signals “further visibility of the company’s brand in Rwanda.”
“Just like a storefront window, we know that a good domain creates awareness and attract customers. It boosts search engine ranking, and as companies like us scale up our website through quality content, this domain name becomes more recognizable and top of search engines like Google,” the representative added.
Web4Africa has lauded RICTA’s latest announcement as it expressed commitment to boosting its web hosting infrastructure to assist its customers all over the world, especially in Africa where it is based.
“We have invested extensively in our own best in class web hosting infrastructure. These include enterprise-grade dedicated servers, networking equipment as well as our own dual-stack multi-homed autonomous internet protocol network. Our setup is resilient and capable of delivering web traffic rapidly and securely,” the representative said.
RICTA is a not-for-profit organization representing the interests of the Rwandan internet community. It was formed in 2005 with the objective of managing the .RW country code top level domain and the Rwanda internet exchange point.
Founded in 2002, Web4Africa offers web presence solutions to clients worldwide. The company is a full member of Nominet, and is accredited by NiRA, NiC-NA, and ZACR, among other ccTLD registries.
Web4Africa said it offers hundreds of domain types as well as hosting solutions from four data centers across Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa.

Web Hosting with cPanel is a web hosting setup on a server running CentOS operating system and with cPanel as the Graphic User Interface (GUI) control panel.
