    New co.za Domain Name Registration Service

    Hi Everyone

    I just want to introduce a new co.za domain name registration service at www.cozareg.com

    I developed a new service where users are free to register their own domain names, or update their existing domains by simply completing an online form.

    It is often very difficult for users to register co.za domains, but I intended to ease this process.

    The only fees payable is the fees to Uniform. Our website is totally free.

    I will appreciate any comments on the service.

    My first thought was - why use a .com domain name for a coza registration service?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

  3. Thanks given for this post:

    Hi Dave

    We had lengthy discussions about this, but eventually thought that a .com should be used.

    This, however do not change the service we offer in helping average users in registering co.za domains.

    Hi pap_sak

    Thank you.

    I only make use of Google Adsense, but making money is no big deal at all.

    I only did the site out of frustration in the way Uniform works in domain registration and management.

    Uniforum is a little pedantic

    I agree a novice should find your form approach far more user friendly.

    So do you just make sure the mail attachment format is correct, or do you (your script) do the DNS validation as well before forwarding the application?

    What makes this service unique that I will not either go to hostcow or godaddy?

    Godaddy doesn't offer .co.za domain registration and hostcow offers other paid services.

    From what I understand this is a free domain registration service

    Have to agree that I used to think that - these days though, I actually like not being bombarded with offers and having to go through pages and pages like I have to with .com reg sites and godaddy. Now it's just cut and paste, and I get a site up in under half an hour.

    So making it easier for people does not help me!!! LOL, but nicely done and I think your site will work.
