Botswana Communications Regulatory Authority has been mandated by the government of Botswana to manage and operate the .BW ccTLD. This was followed by the formation of a Technical Advisory Committee made up of the ‘Local Internet Community’. This public-private partnership was therefore the initial step in facilitating the redelegation of the ccTLD from Botswana Telecommunications Corporation and the University of Botswana to Botswana Communications Regulatory Authority (BOCRA).
BOCRA does not accept registration requests from individuals (registrants). Registrants will have to identify one of the accredited registrars and register with them.
