TCRA to enforce use of .tz domain names
Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) published a public notice in the Daily News on 1st June, 2016 that reminds us that all business entities registered in the country should have and use dot(.) tz domain names.
The notice stated that this requirement is in order to comply with the regulatory requirements and to contribute to the national revenue. However, the notice does not give a deadline to do so or limit the use of other domain endings. Therefore we assume that if you own a .com, .net, .org, or any other domain ending then you are required to register a respective .tz domain name.
Extreme Web Technologies is the top performing accredited registrar of tzNIC. The price of domain registration for .TZ is TZS 25,000/- per annum. If you are using a .com, .net, .org or any other extensions, please get in touch with us so we can assist you to acquire your .TZ domain and setup the redirections if required. You can continue using your current domain name for your email communications.
