joburg domain

The joburg domain is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for South Africa. It is commonly used by businesses, organizations, and individuals located in South Africa or those with a connection to the country. The joburg domain is managed by the ZA Central Registry (ZACR), which oversees the registration and administration of domain names within the .za domain space. It’s widely used for both commercial and non-commercial purposes and is one of the most popular domain choices for entities operating within South Africa.

To use a joburg domain, you need to register it through a domain registrar accredited by the ZA Central Registry (ZACR) or one of its authorized resellers. During registration, you’ll need to provide contact information and specify the desired domain name. If the domain name is available and meets the registration requirements, you can proceed with the registration process.

Domain Name System (DNS)

Once registered, the domain name is added to the Domain Name System (DNS). DNS is like the internet’s phonebook, translating domain names into IP addresses, which are used by computers to locate websites. The DNS records for the domain are typically managed through the registrar’s control panel.


To have a website associated with your joburg domain, you’ll need to host your website’s files on a web server. This server stores the files that make up your website and serves them to visitors when they access your domain name in their web browsers.


You’ll need to configure your domain settings to point to your web hosting server. This involves updating the DNS records, usually by specifying the IP address of your hosting server or by setting up other records such as A (Address) or CNAME (Canonical Name) records.

Website Accessibility

Once the DNS changes propagate (which can take some time, typically up to 48 hours), your website will be accessible via your coza domain name. Visitors can type your domain name into their web browsers to access your website’s content.

Renewal and Management

It’s important to keep your domain registration active by renewing it before it expires. Registrars usually offer various management tools for domain owners to update contact information, change DNS settings, and renew their registration.
