DNS testing of systems is currently underway. An additional TLD, .africa will also be available.
The domain names dotJoburg, dotCapeTown and dotDurban have been set a launch date of 1 May, 2014. The following domain types will then be available for registration: .co.za, .joburg, .capetown, .durban, .africa.
The dotCities domain names have secured the support of the Department of Communications and the relevant city municipal councils.
