Zamnet monopolizes registrations in the .ZM namespace and inevitably, there have been complaints of abuse, graft, lack of response to users and other issues that make .ZM one of the worst ccTLDv registries in Africa. Allegations have been reported by a frustrated registrant of staff at Zamnet altering registration dates of good domain names, without notifying users with an aim of acquiring them. Read Zamnet.co
