New CO.ZA Platform

Lexsynergy is one of the first registrars to be accredited with Uniforum SA ( Registry) and to implement their new registry-registrar platform using Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP).

The new platform is intended to improve the efficiency of registering and managing domain names.

What does the new platform mean for registrants?

• The Whois information will change as it will no longer display technical, administrative and billing contact information. See the Whois screenshot of below.
• It will take 5 days to update registrant information but the registrant will not be required to accept an update ticket as is the case with the legacy system (old email ticketing system).
• Transfers from one accredited registrar to another will be processed immediately once accepted by the registrant. If the transfer is not accepted it will complete after 5 days of submitting the transfer request. If the registrant declines, the transfer will not complete.
• Nameserver updates will be processed in near real-time so the legacy system of waiting 24hours for nameservers to update will be a thing of the past.

The new EPP registry-registrar platform is a step in the right direction, bringing domain names to the global market.

Email if you have any question regrading domain names or any other TLD worldwide.
