Call To Action

In a bid to create more awareness around COVID-19 Government has called on all .za domain name holders that have an associated website to create a landing page with a visible link to www.sacoronavirus.co.za. For more details see section 5.1.4 of Regulation No. 43164 published on 26 March 2020.

ZACR gTLD OT&E Criteria


The gTLD Criteria defined below are for the following gTLDs:

- dotAfrica
- dotCapeTown
- dotDurban
- dotJoburg


Meeting the gTLD OT&E Criteria does not entitle a registrar to operate during the General Availability Phase of the above-mentioned domain name spaces.

ICANN Accredited Registrars that have obtained gTLD OT&E are permitted to participate in the new gTLD General Availability Phase if they have also signed the 2013 ICANN RAA.

ZACR Accredited registrars that have obtained gTLD OT&E are only permitted to participate in the new gTLD General Availability Phase if they make use of the Proxy Registrar solution. More information on this will be provided closer to General Availability.

OT&E Criteria

 

"Accredited" shall mean to be accredited by the ZACR as having met these OT&E Criteria and ZACR Accreditation Requirements in respect of the ZACR gTLDs (dotAfrica, dotDurban, dotJoburg, dotCapeTown), as evidenced by the issue of an Accreditation Certificate by the ZACR to the Registrar. The certificate will be an online digital representation, indicating the approved Accreditation of the Accredited Registrar.

"Accreditation Criteria" shall mean the requirements specified by the ZACR from time-to-time in relation to the minimum criteria which must be satisfied by a person/entity in order for that person/entity to be Accredited and which is specified in the Published Policies.

To become Technically Accredited and be issued with an Accreditation Certificate, certain Accreditation Criteria must be met. In this regard, all EPP commands as required by the ZACR have to be completed successfully.

Registrars can track their progress and results through their Registrar Panel by clicking on "gTLD" under the "OT&E" heading on the right-hand side.

Below is a list of XPaths that the ZACR will be validating against. To become technically accredited, all XPaths must be passed according to their specific EPP functions.
