The ".za" Domain Name Authority has the role to manage the ".za" domain name space and to protect its interests and rights of everyone involved in using it. The ".za" Domain Name Authority was established in terms of Chapter X of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act in 2002.

5. Publish guidelines on:

• the maintenance of and public access to a repository;

• the general administration and management of the ".za" domain name space.

At present one may only register a domain on the third level (eg. However there are a large amount of second-level domains under the ".za" domain space. The operation of subdomains should be performed in a manner that minimises overhead in all senses of the word, and maximises accountability.

".za" subdomains are created for the public interest hence the applications for domains should be submitted when the creation of a new division of the ZA namespace would serve a clear need by the public, or some reasonable subsection of the public. It should be said that subdomains under ".za" are not created, and should not be applied for, for the sole and exclusive benefit of a person or organisation.

Unfortunately the ".za" DNA dont yet have the mechanisms to resolve a ".za" domain name dispute however regulations in this regard are in the process of being promulgated by the Department of Communications.
