Dot CF



About Dot CF

Dot CF is an initiative of the Societe Centrafricaine de Telecommunications (SOCATEL) in Bangui, Central African Republic.

Dot CF's mission statement:

The Dot CF Registry acknowledges that .CF domains can have an important social impact on the lives of the people in the Central African Republic and abroad. The mission of both SOCATEL and the Dot CF Registry is to increase the use of internet in the Central African Republic and the awareness of the Central African Republic in the world. Dot CF directly funds SOCATEL's efforts to improve the population's access to internet.

Infrastructure and Technology

SOCATEL is using the infrastructure and expertise of Freedom Registry to run the CF domain in a stable and automated way.

With its experienced management team and staff, multi-redundant backbones and DNS root-servers located in every corner of the world, Dot CF can handle millions of registrations and is fully secure.

CF launch planning

While Dot CF intends to give away the majority of its domains for free, we will apply international best practices in trademark and IP protection and will launch according to the following calendar:

  • May 1 to May 31: registration of CF domains for trademark owners.
  • June 1 to August 31: registration of CF paid domains for everyone, on a first come, first served basis.
  • September 1: general availability of CF free domains.
