Premium .co.za domains

1st Africa wishes to foster a honest and trustful relationship with our customers and in keeping with this wish to inform you about premium .co.za domain names.

Ever since the ICANN launch of new Gtlds in 2014 more and more registries have chosen to created and operate premium domain names. Now registries see this method as making a little more money on the side.

What this means for you?

As such we can no longer guarantee to provide you the correct price when attempting to register a .co.za domain name, the prices in our price list are the standard prices for non-premium .co.za domains.

The price we quote for .co.za will normally be correct 99% of the time, but sometimes if the registry deems the name to be premium we may not be able to until we have placed the order with the registry.

In most cases we will be able to inform you once you are ready to complete your purchase, but sometimes we will be able to inform you until you have completed your order request for a .co.za domain.

This makes life very difficult for us and extremely frustrating for our customers.
Thank fully for the moment the number of .co.za domains this effects is a small percentage.

As a rough rule of thumb.
If a .co.za domain is a 1-3 letter domain it may attract a premium fee.

If a .co.za domain is a generic word it may attract a premium fee.

In all cases we will advise you of any premium .co.za charges before we take the funds.
If you need any more information on these please do let us know we will be happy to assist.
