PKNIC to Giveaway 5,000 Free Domains for Local Language Content

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and Pakistan Network Information Centre (PKNIC) have announced a joint initiative to launch local Internet content drive in the country.

Under the program, PKNIC would offer 5000 FREE domains for those who would develop Local Content websites in Urdu or any other local language.

PKNIC is the (ccTLD) operator for “pk domain”. ccTLD stands for country code Top Level Domain which represents a country on the Internet.

Speaking at the occasion, Chairman PTA, Dr. Mohammed Yaseen said

This support has been offered in view of the importance linked with availability of local contents and applications for the future outlook of Information Communication Technology (ICT) sector of Pakistan.

He further said that this program will encourage and contribute towards enhancement of local contents followed by applications as this initiative is the first of its kind in the world.

Chairman PTA appreciated the efforts of PKNIC management for this important project. PKNIC management highly valued the necessary endorsement of Chairman PTA for the joint initiative.

We are in process of acquiring information on how to obtain free domain with PKNIC under local content drive.
