Transfer procedure

The TLD .CO.ZA has a special way of confirming or denying a transfer. .CO.ZA makes use of a voting system, which involves owner contact and registrar.

Once a transfer has been initiated, the current owner and current registrar of the domain will be notified of the transfer request. Both have 5 days to accept this request. If none of them accepts, or if one objection is made, the transfer will be denied. If the owner accepts, the transfer is completed instantaneously.

Transfer notes

Transfer time

A transfer of a .CO.ZA domain will take five (5) days.
