Kenya has been ranked third in domain-name registration in Africa after Egypt and South Africa.

Mr Abdalla Omar, the general manager of the Kenya Network Information Centre (Kenic), said Kenya has about 46,000 domain names.

Mr Abdalla said Kenyans are losing millions of shillings by not registering their domain names.

The losses occur in arbitration, where other international firms take up their brands.

“We plan to have 90 per cent of Kenyan firms on domain. Pricing has now changed to Sh1,000,” he said.
