What are my domain name extension options in South Africa?
There are a few options for South Africa with respect to Domain choices. The domain you select can have an impact on your web site. The Domain extension is supposed to give more information on the purpose of the website it is linked to. A co.za domain is for commercial purpose hence the co, an abreviation for commerce. An org extension is used mainly for non-profit organisations

How important is the Domain name?
The correct domain name is a very important factor in getting traffic to your site if you are depending on organic search engine traffic, ie traffic from a search engine such as Google that has found your site by means of there bots and not using a sponsored advert approach.

The Domain name needs to tell the user what the function of the site is, eg idshosting.co.za, we know its a hosting site, thus the prime keyword for the website is 'hosting'.

How search engines see ZAR extensions?
When you have a website with a co.za domain, Google search engine will limit your search results for your website search to the South African market. It is recommended to use a .com or .co for international commercial websites.
