Before 2014, those who were savvy enough to have a web presence back then were limited to a couple of dozen choices that included .co.za, .com, .net, .org, .name and the likes. In the years since, the choices have increased massively. In this write-up, we examine the wide range of choices available in South Africa today for just about any use-case.
While .za has been relatively successful in South Africa based on its popularity, it can still be slightly challenging for one to find the perfect domain name considering many of the good ones are taken already. With about 1.3 million, .co.za domains actively registered at the time of writing it can sometimes require some creativity to find the very best domain possible. Noteworthy, there are still zillions of possible domains that can be registered under .co.za – the resource itself is virtually infinite.
Either way, there are many other South African domain endings, in addition to .co.za, that one can choose from.
Other .za extensions readily available to the general public are:
.net.za – ideally for suitable for internet service providers and telecom operators, it can be used as a credible alternative to .co.za
.org.za – this is the ideal choice for South African non-profits and other miscellaneous organisations
.web.za – this is positioned as a general-use alternative to .co.za
While over a dozen other .za domain extensions (like .gov.za, .ac.za) exist, they are heavily regulated and only made available to relevant qualified entities.
Any enterprise in any of South Africa’s three main metro areas can also make use of any of the three city top-level domains designated for them respectively. Not only do they serve as credible online identities, they also help with re-enforcing one’s association with the said cities.
Where an entity wishes to target more than one African country, however, no other domain ending can beat .africa – it is specifically designed for any and every entity that wishes to identify with Africa. It is open to individuals, businesses, non-profits, governments, etc. across Africa.
300+ domain endings
Even better, there are over 300 other domain extensions like .xyz, .online, .store, .site etc, available from Web4Africa - across 18 categories. The categories are listed below:
Established in 2002, Web4Africa is an ICANN-accredited domain name registrar offering over 300 domain extensions to clients worldwide. Other services offered by Web4Africa include web hosting and virtual servers from data centers across four African countries.
