Cameroon Telecommunications, or CAMTEL, is the registry operator and sponsor organization that manages and administers the .cm ccTLD for Cameroon.[1]

In 2006, the .cm Registry set up a wild card DNS record for all unregistered .cm domains, in partnership with Canadian domain investor Kevin Ham. This arrangement redirected traffic on all unregistered domains to a parking page with PPC ads, agoga.com. Subsequent .CM auctions generated millions of dollars in revenues. McAfee designated .cm as the riskiest namespace with 36.7% of .cm websites posing a security risk to web users.[1]
