Previously, SMEs that wanted to cut out the ‘middle man’ and register their own .co.za domain name were required to download a text file and email it to Uniforum (the registrar). CoZaGator automates this process, making it possible to submit all the necessary information online. The cost is only the annual domain registration fee of R50, which is payable directly to the registrar. The site caters to non-technical people who would like to register their domain names to use for email and small business owners who want to create a website at a later date. It also allows you to check whether or not a domain name is available. CoZaGator, previously known as CoZaReg, is available from the SiteGator website.To register a new domain name visit www.sitegator.co.za/cozagator
