Cheapest Domain Registration South Africa FAQs

Answers to domain name frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, please contact us.

How do I register a domain in South Africa?

Registering a domain is very simple. On the domains page, use the domain search form to 1. check the availability of your domain. If your domain is available, 2. add it to cart, 3. add optional web hosting so you can build a live website and use emails. then 3. pay for your domain to complete the registration process. It is that simple.

Can I buy a domain name without a website?

Yes, you can buy a domain without a website just to reserve it so that no one else in the world can take the domain.

What's the difference between a domain and a website?

A domain name basically is your company or website's unique address on the internet. A website is a collection of pages and files hosted on your domain. You can think of your domain as your company's phone number on the internet (what people dial to find you're selling) and your website as your online brochure.

Do you have to pay for your domain every year?

Yes, each domain must be renewed once every year through your host so that no one else can register that domain or take it away from your ownership. If the domain is not renewed on time, it gets deleted from the internet, your website and emails will stop working.

Should your domain name match your company name?

Typically yes, matching your domain name to your company's name is good for online branding.  It makes it easy for people who know your company's name remember your website and email address easily. But if you need to start something like a blog, your domain name can just be something around what your blog is all about. 

Where can I get a free domain name and hosting?

In today's world, it is not guaranteed that you can get a free domain and hosting. The only guarantee is that you can get a hosting company running a promotional offer that includes a free domain registration/transfer when you sign up and pay for web hosting.

For example, here at Mashjoy Hosting South Africa, we only give a free .co.za domain when you order web hosting 6-12 months in advance. However, this will differ from hosting to hosting company. Here is a List of good web hosting providers which offer a free domain when you sign up for web hosting.

Who hosts my domain?

100% of the time, your hosting provider is the one who hosts and administers your domain. You can also go to icann.org/lookup. Enter your domain name in the search window and click Lookup. Scroll down to Registrar Information on the results page. Your domain host is generally the registrar.

Can someone steal my domain name?

Yes and No. Let me explain:

Yes - If you did not renew your domain and it has expired or reached the end of the domain deletion stage. Once the domain has passed the deletion stage, it becomes available to be registered again and can be purchased by anyone in the world and registered through any registrar they choose.

No - Once you have registered a domain, it is yours to keep forever, for as long as you renew it on time and do not give anyone admin access to it. This means no one can transfer or takeover your domain without your permission.

What happens if you lose your domain name?

Domain names are generally kept safe and locked to your ownership with your host and registrar. Making it very hard for anyone to illegally steal or takeover your domain without your permission. In rare cases that someone steals your domain, you should contact your host and prove ownership of the domain so it can be linked back to your domain.

What is the difference between a .com and .co.za domain?

A .com is an international commercial domain normally used for websites, online stores, and blogs. Whereas a .co.za is a geographic domain estension for South African-based websites and blogs. 

Read this article if you are just starting out and not sure which domain extension to use between a .co.za and a .com.
