Please be advised that the CO.ZA registry will be updated on the 16th of September 2014 at 08h00 SAST (06h00 UTC) with the following changes:
• Transfers that fail due to voting will now return a poll message to the retaining Registrar indicating the failure. Click here for an example of the poll message.
• Contact updates will now issue an email to the Registrant on initiation as well as completion, the emails will display the contact update changes before and after the update command.
• Domain update notification emails sent to registrants will now clearly indicate that the update will only take effect at the end of the 5 day Pending Update period.
• The Registrant transfer vote email has been updated with MIME multipart to include both plain text and HTML sections, this is to prevent the transfer link being broken by some email clients.
The above changes are currently live on the CO.ZA OT&E for testing purposes.
We do not anticipate more than 30 minutes downtime during this update.
