New CO.ZA Platform

Lexsynergy is one of the first registrars to be accredited with Uniforum SA (co.za 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 co.za domain names.

What does the new platform mean for co.za registrants?

• The Whois information will change as it will no longer display technical, administrative and billing contact information. See the Whois screenshot of Lexsynergy.co.za 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 co.za domain names to the global market.
