Our .net domain story

.net100

Web4Africa started operations in the year 2002, using the domain name web4africa.net – we registered web4africa.com about two years later but have stayed with the .net domain ever since. This is even more intriguing because in most African countries, .net only ranks 3rd in popularity among generic TLDs. This write-up celebrates our use of .net

.net100

Our choice of .net in the very beginning was out of necessity: We believe in Africa and thus wanted to start a pan-African web presence service that is open to anyone in the world thus the name Web4Africa, a short/funky form of “Web For Africa”. web4africa.com domain was already taken by someone else but we believe in the name Web4Africa enough to settle for web4africa.net

To be clear, .net is every bit as good as a .com and in some context, even better than .com. According to Wikipedia:

The domain name net is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) used in the Domain Name System of the Internet. The name is derived from network, indicating its originally intended purpose was for organizations involved in networking technologies, such as Internet service providers and other infrastructure companies. However, restrictions were never enforced and the domain is now a general purpose name space. It is still popular with network operators, and is often treated as an alternative to com.

To celebrate .net’s 15 years anniversary, Verisign (the .net domain registry) in collaboration with Entrepreneur (USA) magazine, launched .Net100, a curated list of the top 100 .net domain names in the world.

.Net100 – a ranking that measures the top sites on the web with the .net domain extension. Entrepreneur and Verisign came together to assemble the ranking, which is based on quantitative factors and the feedback from Entrepreneur’s audience of sophisticated, successful business owners. Together, we then gathered traffic and social metrics for each site, as well as your votes to determine the rankings.
