ZACR offers Registry Lock, says manual changes less prone to manipulation than automated systems

Wednesday 16 September 2020 | 11:08 CET | News
The ZA Central Registry (ZACR) said that it now offers a Registry Lock security feature for the EPP-based domain names under its management. This helps to prevent domain name hijacking or unauthorised transfer. ZACR CEO Lucky Masilela says Registry Lock can be activated for the co.za, net.za, org.za, web.za extensions as well as the four gTLDs of .africa, .capetown, .durban and .joburg.
