JOHANNESBURG – THE ZA Central Registry (ZACR) is celebrating 30 years of administering South Africa’s presence on the worldwide web.

Its presence includes about 1,2 million domain co.za second-level domain, as well as the web.zaorg.za and net.za domains.

“We’ve been on the job for almost 11 000 days and never once have any of the ZACR-administered domains experienced a single day of downtime due to our system failure,” said Lucky Masilela, ZACR Chief Executive Officer.

“This uninterrupted service sustained over 30 years is the reason ZACR is Africa’s best performing registry operator with the highest domain name registration numbers.”

ZACR was incorporated 30 years ago as UniForum SA.

The non-profit was founded initially to promote open systems and networks.

In 1995 UniForum SA was tasked with administering the fledgling co.za within the greater .za namespace.

Registry Africa, ZACR’s subsidiary, is also the administrator of the dotAfrica (.africa) geographic Top Level Domain which has over 17 000 domain name registrations and is making a significant positive impact on Africa’s presence in cyberspace.

Leading global and continental organisations have endorsed the .africa brand,which is premised on the promotion of Africa as the Bright Continent.
