The Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful introduces the first-ever governing board of the Ghana Domain Name Registry (GDNR) and it was a critical milestone in Ghana’s domain name history.
In a post sighted by TheGhanaTech.com, “Having a specific country domain is not only a matter of national pride, but also a critical resource for both individuals and businesses in building customer confidence and trust, and customer predictability which are key ingredients for the success of businesses and successful transactions” the minister stated.
Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful stated that “It is therefore long overdue for individuals and corporate bodies in Ghana to use the.GH domain and reap the benefits associated with country-specific domains, including enhanced visibility via the internet through the various search engines”.
The Ghana Domain Name Registry (GDNR) became operational in 2017 and is currently going through a transitional phase as we systematically give effect to our law. The minister stated that she is expecting to feel the presence of the Governing Board within the shortest possible time by addressing the most critical issues facing the Ghana Domain Name Registry (GDNR).
“I, therefore, urged the board to devise strategic means of ensuring the availability of funds for the procurement of much-needed infrastructure and the day-to-day running of the organisation,” said Ursula.
