The Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) now offers domain name registration for any registered company, close corporation or co-operative.
The Parties Involved?
The opportunity is made possible by the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) in collaboration with the .za Domain Name Authority (.ZADNA), the ZA Central Registry (ZACR) and Domain Name Services (DNS).
The CIPC currently only offers .co.za domain names. The org.za; web.za; and net.za extensions will soon become available via the CIPC registration process.
My company is not yet registered, can I register a domain?
No. All domain names registered through CIPC must be linked to existing companies, therefore you must have a registered company before you can start with this process.
Will CIPC host my domain?
No. CIPc does not offer hosting, only domain name registration.
