sublime//ip has provided domain name registration in Africa, and most notably South Africa, for a number of years.

South African domain registration is open to registrants from anywhere in the world. South Africa uses the domain extension. Of all domains registered in African ccTLDs, domains comprise around 90% of the total, making clearly the most popular domain choice.

Domain Name Management

South Africa is an unrestricted domain (no local South African presence required). is a popular country code top level domains (ccTLDs).

We are also able to register domains in several of the many other African nations: Algeria, Angola, Ascension Island, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Democratic Republic, Congo, Republic of, Cote d'Ivoire, Djibouti, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Reunion Island, Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, St. Helena, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Western Sahara, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Of the nations of Africa, some have open/unrestricted policies that allow people from anywhere to register domains without a local representative or presence. These include South Africa (.za), Libya (.ly), Sao Tome and Principe (.st) and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (which has the catchy ccTLD of .cd). The majority of the remaining nations of Africa either have no functional domain registration capability or are available to local residents only.

We can provide billing in US Dollars, Euro, Sterling and other major currencies. South African Rand (ZAR) is available on request in some circumstances.
