History: The .bw registry was first operated by the University of Botswana, who were listed as the sponsoring organisation. The registry was later transferred to the management of Botswana Telecommunications Corp, under the administration of Gary Northfield. In 2009 the government of Botswana mandated the regulator to take over the operations and maintenance of the registry for neutrality. The redelegation process was started in 2012 May and completed in 2013.
