Integriweb can assist you in registering any available domain name. By far the highest volume of top-level domains (TLDs) that we register are in the .co.za namespace, followed by .com. Also popular to South Africans is the .org.za domain extension. Companies are often drawn towards registering .com domains simply because they think it sounds more credible. There are a number of pitfalls to this philosophy, some less obvious than others. We always advise that, if your main target market is the South African population, then your domain should reflect that with a .co.za extension. If however you sell an electronic product (such as an e-book or some form of download service) to a worldwide market, then a .com would be a better option. One of the biggest problems with .com registration is that most of the good ones are already taken and you often have to become quite creative in thinking of the perfect domain, also for SEO purposes.
We can also assist and advise on cybersquatting. It happens more and more regularly that someone holds a good domain ransom, simply because they want to sell it to the highest bidder. The .co.za namespace is pretty clear on this: When you register a domain with them it has to be with the intention of publishing a website at that domain, and not for the purpose of reselling to the highest bidder. Unfortunately they do not regulate or enforce this much, and there are thousands of domains still being snatched up by cybersquatters. If you are a victim, please contact us to discuss your options.
