COMMAND = DeleteDomain DOMAIN = yourdomain.co.za
command = TransferDomain domain = yourdomain.co.za action = request
.co.za has a special way of confirming or denying a transfer. The registry 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.
A .co.za domain name cannot be transferred during its Anniversary Period. This period is two (2) days prior to its expiration up to the fifth (5th) of the following month.
command = RestoreDomain domain = yourdomain.co.za
