Plan your .joburg, .capetown and .durban domains

UniForum SA has applied for four new domains from ICANN: .africa, .joburg, .durban and .capetown

Domains

UniForum SA, trading as the ZA Central Registry (ZACR), is planning to bring four new domains to Africa: .africa, .joburg, .durban and .capetown.

Uniforum SA director, Neil Dundas said that the ZACR bid for the right to administer the dotAfrica TLD (.africa) was formally submitted to ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) in April 2012. This was after consultation with the AUC and the African domain name community.

“The dotAfrica TLD (top level domain) will bring the continent together as an internet community under one umbrella allowing e-commerce, technology and infrastructure to flourish,” said Dundas.

Dundas said that the hope is to launch the new .africa domain between February and April 2013, and it will be priced at USD18 (R150) per year per domain name.

ZACR has also applied for three South African city top level domains: .joburg, .durban and .capetown.

Dundas said that they hope to launch the city domains in early 2013 as well, adding that the pricing will be slightly more expensive than an .africa domain name.
