We are convinced that the potential of our growth depends on the degree of our offensive on high potential markets in the African continent and the Middle East.

The Moroccan company that specialises in domain names and professional web hosting, Genious Communications, accelerates its growth internationally. Concretely, the enterprise launches international versions of its web hosting and domain names website https://www.genious.net. Each country has, from now on, a dedicated multi-language (Arabic, French and English) and multi-currency website with adequate means of payment (PayPal, Credit card and mobile payment).

"The deployment of our services in Africa and the Middle East capitalises on the maturity of our offer on the Moroccan market since 2003. We are convinced that the potential of our growth depends on the degree of our offensive on high potential markets in the African continent and the Middle East," explains, Hamza Aboulfeth, founder of Genious Communications.

Today, the company, which has an installed base of over 10,000 customers, can also manage online orders of domain names and web hosting from Maghreb countries, Africa ( Senegal, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa...) and the Middle East ( Qatar and United Arab Emirates ).

This positioning to the African market and the Middle East converges with the company's internationalisation strategy and its investment in the Cloud. Indeed, in 2011 Genious Communications was accredited as the first Registrar in the region by ICANN. As of 2012, it marked a turning point with the launch of the first cloud offerings in the Moroccan market.

"Along with our new offering in the African and the Middle East markets, we have conducted a complete overhaul of our services offerings (shared hosting, cloud and security) with an aggressive pricing policy and a focus on businesses," reveals Mr Aboulfeth. It concerns "Genious Managed Hosting" designed to host high traffic websites such as media, "Genious Mail Solution" for professional mailing service and CDN (Content delivery network).

Morocco has currently over 57 000 domain names with the .ma ccTLD without counting gTLDs such as .com, .net and .org..
