Every domain requires a top and second level domain name. The “.co.za” part of a domain represents the top-level domain name. The “.co” stands for general use by South African and non-South African persons and entities. The “.za” part of the domain is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for South Africa.
Which domain purpose do I choose?
The domain purpose relies a lot on what purpose you would like your company to have and where your domain is going to be displayed. For example if you need your website to be featured internationally, commonly a “.com” top level domain name will be used from South Africa. A “.co.za” is better if your purpose is to infiltrate the local market. There are also non-profit domain purposes and alternatives to .co.za. We generally supply .org and .net but have had requests to host a .church and many other types.
