Kenyan regulator looks to decommission domain registrar

The country's communications agency is looking to put in place a new registry, but the process is controversial.

Industry insiders want to see any new registry regime put in place via a transparent process.

"The public are the real owners of .ke and must be fully involved in any decision making process that will affect the fundamental operations of the registry," said Barrack Otieno, chairperson of the Kenya chapter of the Internet Society.

Aly Hussein, a former KENIC board member representing the domain registrars association, said that the process must be transparent and involve businesses in the domain name industry because they will be the most affected.
