The first ccTLDs registered in Africa were .EG (Egypt) and .ZA (South Africa), both assigned in 1990. The last came with the 1998 registration of .KM (Comoros). There are total of 56 ccTLDs registered in Africa. In 1997 .ZR (Zaire) was retired and .CD went into use, a reflection of the country’s new name, Democratic Republic of Congo.
