The Old Namibian Registry Website
The former (pre COCCA) Namibian registry website was known for amusing turns of phrase. On additional fees the na-nic.com.na website formerly stated:
"The Registration Capacity Building Levy (RCBL) is charged, if the application is submitted by a third party. Experience has shown that most unnecessary headaches are caused by Registrars who are unwilling or unable to adhere to simple instructions as published on this web page. Therefor this RCBL is charged to on the one hand to encourage applicants to obtain the required expertise. On the other hand we want to stimulate the Namibianisation of the IT industry and charge the RCBL in Euro if the application is submitted by a foreign third party.
"The Maintenance Capacity Building Levy (MCBL, also called Annual Capacity Building Levy, ACBL) is charged because dealing with third parties in regards of the technical management causes even more headaches."
There is undoubtedly a long and amusing story behind this! It is unknown if a supply of asprin has now been located and the headaches and resultiung fees have diminished.
One more quote fron the old website deserves preservation here:
"Of course we expect you to read the Terms & Conditions and our policy before you sign them. However, even if you don't, they are as binding on you as is our policy."
Kind of them to point that out. But alas, the old website is no more and all is boringly homogenized now.
