ZADotCities achieve key registration numbers

JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – SOUTH Africa’s ZAdotCities domains of .capetown (‘dotCapeTown’), .joburg (‘dotJoburg’) and .durban (‘dotDurban’) have notched up impressive domain name registrations.

They have totaled over 4 500, 3 500 and 2 500 registrations respectively.

ZA Central Registry (ZACR), which made these geographic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) available for public registration in July 2014, disclosed the figures on Monday.

“The Internet presence of our three leading cities is rapidly becoming a South African online success story,” says ZACR Chief Executive Offiocer, Lucky Masilela.

He says there is sustained local and overseas interest in the major cities that make the continent’s most diversified economic hub.

“As the economy continues to gather steam for a predicted better economic performance in 2017, we’re confident ZAdotCities registrations will experience continued growth,” says Masilela.

ZACR believes a dotCapeTown, dotJoburg and dotDurban domain name appeals to national pride, helps boost search engine optimisation rankings and enables both individual and organisational brands stand out from the worldwide web clutter.

“Every leading city in the world is well on its way to establishing their own unique destination on the web and these latest registration numbers prove South African cities will not be left behind,” concludes Masilela.
