Free .ZA Domain Transfers

While .ZA domain transfers are free-of-charge, be aware that an additional year will not be added to the domain after a successful transfer. Where the domain is almost expired, it is incumbent on the domain owner to renew the domain name immediately it is transferred to Web4Africa successfully, to avoid loosing the domain to expiry.

.ZA Domain Redemption

.ZA Domains go into suspension phase 5 days after expiry. In this phase, the domain name would stop working completely. 5 days after suspension (or 10 days after expiry) the domain would go into redemption grace period. In this phase, the domain registrant can still recover the domain name, albeit at a much higher fee. Web4Africa charges $25 for .ZA Domain Redemption.
