South Africa’s ccTLD has cemented its position as the leading ccTLD on the African continent passing the 1.2 million registrations mark across all their second level domains in recent days.
It was announced last December, but the launch of the platform whereby South African companies can register their company name and a corresponding .za domain name at the same time…
The .za Domain Name Authority (.ZADNA) has released plans to introduce second level domain names for the South African ccTLD with comments due by 16 April.
The South Africans have come up with a unique initiative aimed at start-ups, in particular, to register a domain name at the same time as registering a company name.
Over 12,000 .org.za domain names are set for deletion on 1 September as their registrants have failed to transfer them to a ZACR-Accredited Registrar.
At a recent conference in South Africa, there was a push among registrars for allowing second level registrations of .za domain names.
The three South African city new generic Top Level Domains have had their wholesale prices reduced to the same price as .co.za domain names, the ZA Central Registry has announced.
The registry fee, that is the fee charged to registrars, is set to jump on 1 March just as the South African ccTLD passes the one million registration mark.
