.ZA Registrar-Reseller Development

ICTs can also boost growth in other sectors and promote SMME development by reducing costs and geographic barriers while increasing efficiencies and creating new opportunities. The development of central registers of skills and employment opportunities can further facilitate employment. Digital literacy programmes are likely to increase the employability of individuals across South Africa.

.ZA Domain Name Regulator

As the .ZA Domain Name regulator, we want to broaden participation in the domain name registration and ISP market to be in-line with the demographic composition of the country. We therefore are prepared to train and equip as many historical disadvantaged SMMEs and Entrepreneurs as possible in order to award equal opportunities within this field.

“When we heard ZADNA was coming to our town I felt I would be a good opportunity to find out more about the domain business and identify areas of potential and growth. I must say we were not disappointed, from the presentation one could get a good overview of the domains business, the current players in the market and growth prospects. We are now gearing ourselves in having hosting as our principal business. ZADNA was very instrumental in our successful registration as an accredited domain registrar by waiving the R5000 registration cost for us.”

“Just sorting out few minor things and in a few day we should be ready to launch the site. The site is integrated with WHCMS and is currently in the test mode. The journey ahead is exciting though a bit scary but I trust that with the support from organizations like yourself I will manage…”
