Co.za domain name registrations made easy, for free

Many webmasters and website owners have voiced their frustrations with Uniforum’s outdated domain name registration procedures. Uniforum is the company in charge of the co.za domain administration.

Uniforum currently requires new website registrants to complete a basic *.txt file to register new domains which must then be mailed to coza-admin@co.za in plain text format.

One techie had enough of this process, and set up a new service to make it easier for local users to register a co.za domain name with Uniforum.

“I know that many have had troubles in registering co.za domain names with that pesky txt file that need be completed all the time. I tried my hand at developing an online system where you can register co.za domain names by completing an easy online form,” he said.

Similar systems are available through web hosting companies like Hetzner, but this service is not affiliated with any company and is provided free of charge to the public.

“With our services, users can now register their own co.za domain names directly from the COZA registrar with no middle-man fees! Your annual domain registration fee of R50-00 will be payable directly to the registrar,” the Cozareg website states.

“Users are also in a position to update or delete their domain names using our services at no costs, hassle-free.”

Users who don’t have their own name servers have the option of paying a small fee to use name servers provided by Cozareg.

The new Cozareg website has so far received positive feedback from consumers. “I registered a domain and received a confirmation e-mail and invoice from COZA. This works great,” said one user.
