extends R79 .africa promotion is happy to announce that all new .africa domain name registrations can now be registered at the promotional rate of R79 until 31 March 2021. This comes after the huge success of the initial promotion, which ran until 31 December 2020.

The continent of Africa is known for many things; a diverse cultural heritage, gold, cobalt and other metals, the Big Five and of course its abundance of tourism hotspots. Africa is also the second largest continent in the world boasting 17% of the globe’s population. Despite it being one of the poorest and underdeveloped continents in the world, Africa has the most potential with its wealth of natural resources and people.

In 2017, .africa was launched with the goal to support and develop business on the African continent. The African Union Commission supports this domain and a majority of the 54 African countries’ governments have also shown their support. Since then, large corporates including Absa have adopted this great unique domain extension. Now, nearly four years later the domain gTLD is heating up fast and it’s time for startups and small businesses to look at what a .africa domain name can do for them.


Why choosing a .africa domain name makes sense:

You’ll be spoiled for choice - As a South African business the options for a new, short domain name for domain registrations are limited, but with a .africa domain name - which has only been around for a few years - the available options are still fantastic.

You can show the vision you have for your business - If you harbour bigger dreams for your startup or small business, make it known with a .africa domain name.

You can show your patriotism to your African heritage - Africa is the sunniest, vibiest, most diverse and unique continent on the planet. A .africa domain name allows you the opportunity to identify with the continent you love. You don’t have to own a business to be able to make use of a .africa domain either. Your side hustle, or hobby will look just as glamorous with a .africa extension.
