The number of co.za Web domain names has surpassed the one million mark for the first time.
This is according to the ZA Central Registry (ZACR), which manages the co.za, web.za, org.za, net.za domains as well as the recently launched city top-level domains of .capetown, .joburg and .durban.
The ZACR made the announcement on Twitter on Wednesday.
Also, the ZACR website said on Wednesday that there are now over 1 000 050 co.za domains active.
However, it has taken more than 20 years for co.za to hit the one million mark.
According to a list of the early registrations on the Internet.org.za website, the co.za domain zone was created on 4 June 1992, while the first website to be added was bksinc.co.za on 25 June 1992.
The second website to be added to the co.za domain zone was paradigm.co.za.
Subsequently, the ZACR came to manage the co.za domain in 1995.
The ZACR has also been in a bid to manage the impending .africa. But the allocation of this name by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers has been held back amid a complaint by DotConnectAfrica Trust that its competing application for the domain name was not treated fairly.
