There is no specific procedure related to the registration of a domain name.

.CO.ZA domain names are allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.


In order to transfer your domain name to Netim, you must first go through an approval process.
To this end, the registry sends a validation request to the domain name holder as well as to the former registrar in order to request their agreement or refusal within 5 days.

According to a truth table, the result could be:

  • An immediate validation of the transfer
  • A validation of the transfer at the end of the 5-day period
  • A rejection at the end of the 5-day period

When the change is finalized, the expiration date of the domain name remains unchanged

To change the holder, you must first go through an authentication process.
To that end, validation emails will be sent to both current and future domain holders.

After a period of 5 days, the request will be cancelled.

The domain expiration date is not affected by the transfer process.

The extension does not support special characters.

Netim is an accredited registrar

By choosing an accredited Registrar, you avoid middlemen which in turn gives you access to lower prices and makes domain registration, as well as other operations, quicker.
