On May 30, 2023, ANINF (the National Agency for Digital Infrastructure and Frequencies of the Gabonese Republic) announced that it would be taking over the full management of Gabon’s national extension .GA as of June 3, 2023.
In a country in rapid expansion, this change in governance, decided by the Gabonese authorities, has been in the making for some time, in order to better support .GA domain names holders.
ANINF estimates that there are currently more than 7 million .GA domain names, several million of which are abusively registered. During a technical migration scheduled for June 7, a number of .GA domain names will be deleted for which the previous operator has provided no data. ANINF has chosen to call on AFNIC’s technical expertise to assist it in this transition.
