I think you can still do it directly with Uniforum (http://co.za).

IMHO when Uniforum introduced the EPP system it opened the floodgates for incompetence, bad service and overcharging by anyone who took the trouble to do the paperwork.

I transferred a bunch of domains from Afrihost to Domaincheap recently. No hiccups.

I have a handful of domains with domains.co.za, happy camper so far.

http://co.za is expensive for me, plus as the number of domains grow, you want proper integration with your billing system otherwise your manual billing goes out of sync and you loose money and gain frustrated clients.

We also host all our client's domains on their name. Take a look at at our offerings at: https://www.hostking.co.za

Domain Transfers are free for co.za, web.za, net.za, org.za and domain registrations are R54 each currently.
