Registering or renewing co.za, org.za, net.za, and web.za domains will cost more from 1 March 2015, the ZA Central Registry has told its domain registrars.

ZACR CEO Lucky Masilela said the wholesale price of registrations through their extensible provisioning protocol (EPP) system would become R45, while legacy registrations would increase to R90.

Currently EPP costs R35, while legacy registrations cost R65.88.

These price increases were approved in November 2014, and were originally set to take effect on 16 February 2015.

Further price increases to legacy registrations of R10 per year will be implemented annually from 1 March, until the price reaches R130 in 2019.
