The General Availability (GA) of .joburg, .capetown and .durban has now been opened which means that those three city domain names are now available to anyone.
Individuals or organisations can register local domain names for their website as a .joburg, .capetown or .durban, but you have to act quickly as it will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
The new domain names will be great for local businesses, and it will give the internet a bit of local flavour.
GA means that anyone – whether in South Africa or abroad can register a dotJoburg, dotCapeTown or dotDurban city domain name. Choosing a domain name with some local flavour should work well for many companies. As dotJoburg, dotCapeTown and dotDurban are new domains, everyone has an equal opportunity to get on board early.
Any organisation or individual with a particular affinity for one of South Africa’s three best-known cities can apply now to claim their own piece of one of these valuable brands. It is about more than pride, associating oneself with a particular city through one of these domains allows customers to know more about you and positions your business far more clearly.
