Uganda’s leading news portal Watchdog Uganda has changed its domain name from watchdog.co.ug to watchdoguganda.com following the ongoing major restructuring within the company.
According to the company’s IT specialist Ison Akandinda, the domain was changed due to the ongoing company rebranding thus opting for a new one which could give the site a first Ugandan impression unlike the former.
“We changed the domain name due to company rebranding whereby we wanted to maintain ‘Watchdog Uganda’ in the company title. We wanted to have a feel for Uganda right away from the first impression of the website. Even our social media platforms Twitter and Facebook are titled Watchdog Uganda,” said Akandinda.
