About .CO.ZA


co.za is the country code extension for South Africa. Registrations are open to everyone and do not require a local presence. 

Primary and secondary nameservers must be set-up before the registration request is submitted. This is not required if Lexsynergy nameservers are used.

The legacy system processes registrations and updates via an email system. Updates take 24 hours to process.

The EPP system updates (such as registrations, renewals and nameservers changes) are near live. It does, however, take 5 days to process a registrant update.

Legacy System

The registrant, billing, administrative and technical contact email address must accept the update ticket generated by Lexsynergy. The update ticket must be accepted by one or more of the email contacts by clicking reply to the email and deleting the words DENY (found in the body of the email). The domain name will then be updated 25 hours later. The transfer will fail if renewal fee has not been paid.

EPP System

A legacy domain name takes 24 hours to transfer to the EPP system. 

If the registrant accepts an EPP to EPP transfer, the transfer will complete after the acceptance by the registrant.
