What are the fees involved in registering a domain name?
Usually, you need to pay a registration fee and then pay a renewal fee annually to keep hold of your name. There are not standard fees for .za yet, as the .za SLD (second level domain) operators determine their fees, while other domains do not charge registration and renewal fees. However, all SLDs in ZACR’s operation charge annual domain name fees.
In addition to registration and renewal fees, registrars may charge fees for hosting the domain name, website and email. These “secondary” fees are outside the regulatory ambit of ZADNA and are purely fees contractually agreed between a domain name holder and their registrar.
