Government Wants Money for Use of .kh Suffix

The Telecommunication Regulator of Cambodia (TRC) on Wednesday issued a notice warning private companies and state institutions to pay their 2013 fees for using the country suffix .kh on their websites.

“TRC would like to invite excellencies and okhnas that use websites with .kh to communicate with the TRC…in order to clear invoices for using .kh for 2013,” states the notice, dated Monday and signed by TRC Director Mao Chakriya.

“TRC will temporarily shut down the use of .kh for 2013 if any ministries, departments and companies failed to clear invoices by the aforementioned date [May 22].”

A country suffix is used by the websites of governments and companies to denote where they are located. The .kh suffix, exclusive to Cambodia, is available through a number of web-hosting companies in the country for between $100 and $200 per year.

Mr. Chakriya could not be reached for comment on the amount of money TRC is claiming to be owed, or which government departments and organizations were in arrears.
