Who registered gouv.mu?

November 17, 2014

In an article yesterday, I mentioned it would be wise for the Mauritius ICT ministry to register gouv.mu and proceed to a cleaner migration rather than using the controversial govmu.org domain name.

It seems like someone just grabbed the idea & proceeded with the registration.


Notice the creation date:

Creation Date: 2014-11-16T10:42:24.136Z Registry Expiry Date: 2015-11-16T10:42:24.387Z Sponsoring Registrar: Register.mu Sponsoring Registrar IANA ID: Domain Status: inactive Domain Status: ok

I wonder if it is the Mauritius ICT Ministry who purchased the domain name or someone else. In the latter case, it could lead to undesirable stuffs appearing later.

As at date, gouv.mu and gouvernement.mu have been taken up, both with creation date as 16 November 2014.
