What is the difference between CC and .co.za

  1. Your Accountant could  register your Business CC (Close Corporation) on line at Cipro.co.za (Companies Intellectual Property Omission)
  2. We can register your business .co.za ( Top level domain for SA) Domain Name for Email and Hosting. 

 

Registering your business name at CIPRO does not mean that your name is registered as a Domain Name..co.za (whois) 

Domain Name are Governed by international laws ZADNA (Domain Name Authority) and ICANN and has nothing to do with Cipro where your aply for e.g. CC. 

What this means is that:

Even if your business is registered as a CC and if you want to protect you online Brand or Business name. So in registering from our online facility.will add you Domain Name at the Domain Registrar of SA.

 

What is the terms of the payment?

Domain Names are paid on the date that we register your Domain Name until we remind you annually before your Domain Registration expire.(R98) 

 

 

 

Why do you need to react quickly if you dont already have a Domain Name ?

 

It can also happen that even though your business are registered for CC (at CIPRO Online) someone else could have already registered the domain name that you want to use e.g. A business with the same idea of even Domain Name Broker could poses your Domain Name before you claim it.

 

Don't alow Domain Name Brokers claim your Brand. 

Domain Name Brokers would legally claim most popular domain-names derived from known Brand Names that are not registred as domain-names an resale those domain-names to businesses at 50 times the price.

 

What to do If a broker has claimed your brand as a domain-name

If you feel that Your business deserves the name then you could take the Domain Broker to court and the court will then decide if the Name will be handed to you.If the Court rules not in your favor ( happens from time to time ) then you would lose out on Legal fees.

 

It is simply more sensible to avoid future legal cost and time but rather to protect your brand or business name (that is your investment)

Rather have a trusted IT-administrator that can be responsible enough to manage your domains. We provide this service.

How does domain Names work?

Computers and web-servers on the internet don't understand Names and can only call up or serve IP addresses.

 

 

All Hosted Websites and Email's are addressed by you domain IP number. If your Email is Gmail it is addressed by Google/Gmail IP number.
It is difficult for people to remember IP no. e.g. if want to Google you would type in google.co.za instead of http://74.125.233.56 because google.co.za. is easier to remember.
 
This conversions from the name you type in to IP address is managed by a Domain Name Server (DNS) of your hosting provider.

 

 

Your Domain Name itself is kept on record by the .co.za Register of your country e.g. ZN=New Zealand; ZA South Africa; UK= United Kingdom;FR=France and each country have a Domain Authority (ZADNA and ICANN ) Top level Registrars(whois).
 
All New Domain Names must be registered and DNS configured to point to your Hosting provider. No need to worry further because our automated system will do all the DNS configuring and Hosting setup in order for you to have the best hosting experience.

 

Subdomain : No need to register because it is part of the main domain and its web-address appears before the dot marker in yellow e.g. john.yahoo.com or mybizz.limehosting.co.za. Sub-Domains come at no charge but are not 100% Search-engine-friendly.

 

The Importance of a Domain Name

There are a number of good reasons for having a domain name:

  1. If you ever change your web host, your domain name goes with you. Your regular visitors or customers who knew your site name as www.thesitewizard.com (for example) would not have to be informed about a change of web address (also known as "URL"). They would simply type your domain name and they'd be brought to your new site.
  2. If you are a business, a domain name gives you credibility. Few people will be willing to do business with a company that does not have its own domain name.
  3. If you get a domain name that describes your company's business or name, people can remember the name easily and can return to your site without having to consult their documents. In fact, if you get a good name that describes your product or service, you might even get people who were trying their luck by typing "www.yourproductname.com" in their browser.
  4. You can easily analyze and list your Domain name at search engines like e.g. "Google" or "Bing"

 

It All Starts With A Domain Name

Your  Email:

Your Domain Name will give you a legitimate e-mail for your online identity.

 

Your Email contains two items and this should be complete.

1. Your name or title   2. Your Business name

Your domain forms part of your email.

Your domain name describes your company's business or name so that people can remember the name easily and can return to your site

The following e-mails are not advisable.

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Unfortunately your clients cannot use other free domains as yahoo,google and gmail as lot of abusers are using popular free domains.

We only accept top level domains(TLD), meaning the domain must be in yourdomain.co.za format (all international domains are accepted). 

We do not accept third level domains (and subdomain) like yourdomain.com.co or anything like it.

 

The proper method would be:

Having multiple emails: pointing to you mail email.

 

  1. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.      
  2. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  3. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  4. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  5. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  6. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  7. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Note! Multiple domain emails can be set up to forward to your primary main email.e.g. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Search Engines and Your Domain Names

Some webmasters or business will often add you aws a subdomain to their domain so that you don't have to pay R80 registration fees but then you have to sacrifice that: Search Engines don't give your site but instead their website credit for top ranking and you website will always be dependent on someone else.

 

By having your own Domain Name: Search Engine Crawlers will be enable to directly enter you Website instead of via someone else's domain.

Search engines like Google,Yahoo and Bing will send crawlers ( inspectors) to your website in order to give you rating listing.

If your website are not Search Engine friendly you will be blocking instead of inviting to these crawlers? in other words: You want new customers to find you on Google. 

To find out how many times these search engines have visited your site : just go to cPanel and under Logs select awstats.

 

 

 

Wasting time: Is your Domain Name Taken?

You could loose your future online business name. here are many business that failed to register their domain names because it is already taken either by:

-Some one with the same business idea

or Cybersquating

-Domain investors that will buy of your name and sell it to you at 10x 100x or 1000x  the price at Domain Market. In this case you will have to wait a year for the Domain registered owner to hopefully release that domain name or you have to think of another Domain name.

The word is:

If a domain broker has already registred your business name, He will expect a randsome payment from you. Perhaps R25,000

In this case, unless you believe you have a fundamental legal right to the domain name and are prepared to undertake a UDRP dispute or other legal action against the domain name’s current owner, there’s only one thing left for you to do: make an offer to buy the domain name directly from the current owner.

Besides this you still have 2 other options:

Option A

Wait 1 year for the registration to finish and he will hopefully nor reregister.you can see when the registration start date from this link: "check domain"

Option B

Your most convenient option would be to choose another domain name for your business and if that already exist then choose another one. 

In order to see if your domain is al ready existing or not just type in the name that you want from our Domain Checker
