.ga is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Gabon.

History

Between 1998 and 2004 it was administered by the Office des Postes et Télécommunications de la République Gabonaise and then transferred to Gabon Telecom. Gabon Telecom in 2013 formed a partnership with international domain registrar Freenom to offer registrations of this domain for free.[1] It has quickly become the second most popular domain name offered by Freenom and Safecow, right after .tk[2] which has been free for many years.[citation needed]

Since 2013, the Agence Nationale des Infrastructures Numériques et des Fréquences (ANINF) of Gabon is responsible for the .ga domain.
