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 “price freeze” for the .capetown, .joburg and .durban gTLDs is currently underway and runs from 4 July to 23h59 (SAST) on 8 July with the goal of boosting registrations.
There are currently about 10,500 South African city gTLD domains that have been registered by the ZACR and its registrar partners since they became available for public registration in July 2014.
“There is huge local and overseas interest in South Africa’s three major cities, both from a business and tourism perspective. We expect ZAdotCity registrations to experience continued sustained growth, as well as a significant spike during our Winter Price Freeze Sale” said Lucky Masilela, ZACR CEO.
