The co.za-domains arerepparttar 108252 domains of South Africa. The co.za-domains belong torepparttar 108253 popular domains in Africa.

You cannot register at .za. If your name is not available at co.za, you can also register at org.za.

The com-domain is best for websites that target international markets, while .co.za-domains are best for South African webpages or those with a strong South African reference. This is so because surfer are used to, and you may lose a part of your target group if you deviate fromrepparttar 108254 expected Top Level Domain.
