ZACR says domain prices should increase in line with inflation

Friday 26 June 2020 | 10:15 CET | News
The ZA Central Registry (ZACR) has declared why it considers an increase in the wholesale fee for .ZA domains from ZAR 45 to ZAR 55 per domain to be justified. ZACR says there are moves overseas to increase the price of .com domains by 7 percent per year for four years, but in South Africa, the ZACR is motivating for a simple, inflation-related increase in the wholesale registration and renewal fee for .co.za, .web.za, .org.za and .net.za domains.
