DNS Registration

The school.za DNS is administered by e-Schools’ Network.

The school.za naming policy formerly required to register schools under 3rd-level provincially-based regional domains (e.g. herschel.wcape.school.za). This is now no longer the case! Schools can now be registered under school.za. To register a new domain name, contact the domain administrator listed below. DNS registration form available here .
