The Cameroon government has launched a promotional campaign to boost registrations and use of the country’s ccTLD .cm with a huge reduction in registration fees, according to a report in Business in Cameroon.
The campaign which is supported by the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications, Minette Libom Likeng, sees registry fees charged by ANTIC to registrars capped at CFAF1,000 (around $1.70), taxes included, and registration fees charged by registrars capped at CFAF2,000, again taxes included.
The promotional campaign significantly lowers the registration fees for Cameroon’s country code top-level domain. According to Business in Cameroon, on 26 May 2015 the cost of registering a .cm domain name was decreased from CFAF35,000 (~$58) to CFAF7,500 ($12.50). This means that in the framework of the current promotional campaign, the price has been lowered once again by CFAF5,000.
According to the latest data from ANTIC, there are 53,500 .cm domain names while the country has a population of 26.5 million.
