THE Malaysian AIDS Foundation (MAF) domain is now accessible via maf.org.my
The latest revision of the domain and technical solution is supported by MYNIC, which is the official.MY domain registry in Malaysia, and also Exabytes Network Sdn Bhd.
MAF executive director Jasmin Jalil said the move would support the foundation’s fundraising efforts.
She said the foundation actively sold its merchandise on the website as part of its income-generating exercise to sustain its treatment, care and support programmes nationwide.
“We would like to express our gratitude to MYNIC and Exabytes for assisting us from the start to make this application and transition possible.
“The new domain is a stepping stone for MAF to have a bigger impact and to better position our NGO in the mainstream, particularly to assist people living with HIV in Malaysia,” she added.
MYNIC chief executive officer Datuk Hasnul Fadhly Hasan was pleased to be part of MAF’s journey, especially in digital branding.
“We hope it will increase MAF’s appeal to a wider market segment.
“We also believe this will help MAF extend its reach to create more awareness in promoting its cause,” he said.
Exabytes chief executive officer Chan Kee Siak said through its corporate social responsibility initiative, #ExabytesWeCare was passionate about growing online presence for NGOs and not-for-profit organisations.
“Exabytes has been managing the MAF hosting since 2015.
“With this, we strongly believe the foundation will have a solid groundwork to continue helping those in need,” he added.
