Afilias is the world’s second largest internet domain name registry, with more than 20 million names under management. Afilias powers a wide variety of top-level domains, and will soon support hundreds of new TLDs (top level domains) now preparing for launch, including TLDs for cities, brands, communities and generic terms. Afilias’ specialised technology makes internet addresses more accessible and useful through a wide range of applications, including internet domain registry services, managed DNS and mobile and web services like goMobi® and DeviceAtlas®. Afilias is a supporter of APC's African School on Internet Governance (AfriSIG).
AfriSIG, an initiative co-organised by APC and NEPAD, is a multistakeholder training initiative that aims to give Africans from diverse sectors and stakeholder groups the opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence to participate effectively in internet governance processes and debates.
