RICTA (the .RW registry) is urging all Rwandan citizens who registered free .RW domain names to renew them before 31 December 2013.
Prior to RICTA taking over the administration of the .RW country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) Rwandan citizens were allowed to register one free .RW domain name per person. This free registration service terminates on 31 December 2013.
After 31 December 2013 all expired .RW domain names will be suspended. By the end of 31 January 2014 all the expired .RW domain names will be released into the pool of available .RW domain names.
Renewals of these domain names can only be done via a .RW registrar.
THIS NOTICE ONLY APPLIES TO RWANDAN CITIZENS HOLDING A FREE .RW DOMAIN NAME.
