The ZA Domain Name Authority (ZADNA) is the South African ccTLD Manager established in terms of Chapter X of the Electronic Communications and Transactions (ECT) Act of South Africa to manage and regulate the ZA ccTLD, and to develop the domain name industry in South Africa. As the exclusive domain name authority of South Africa, ZADNA appointed UniForum SA to serve as the ZA Central Registry and provide a centralised platform for the operation of ZA second level domains such as co.za, net.za, org.za and web.za. ZADNA has, with the support of the Department of Communications, officially appointed UniForum SA to apply for, manage and administer the dotDurban gTLD. This forms part of the national domain name strategy aimed at ensuring that South Africa’s three major cities - Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg are at the forefront of digital innovation and leadership. .. The dotDurban registration policy will be established, implemented and maintained through the ZACR as an unrestricted gTLD under the ICANN framework. The registration policy will be based on the premise that it will set out the technical and administrative procedures and criteria used by the registry with regards to domain name registrations or requests for such registrations, including cancellations, transfers, suspensions, revocations, etc. The policy will be informed and guided by the consensus-driven policies and procedures developed through the ICANN multi-stakeholder process."[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/viewstatus Application Download, gTLDresult.ICANN.org]Retrieved 15 Feb 2013 ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]] [[Category:GeoTLD|durban]]

Domain naming tips

3 basic tips when selecting the right domain name for your website.

Using a local top level domain

If it’s a local business and you want more customers, why not take a look at our domains which are given according to the location you require (.lt , .co.uk, .nyc, .berlin).

Avoid numbers

Avoid the usage of numbers because the people who hear about your website will be having a tough time figuring out if the website contains the number (2) or the number in words (two).

Avoid symbols

Hyphens and dashes will make things complicated and it doesn’t look professional.
