Why choose Nexus as your Domain Name Registrar?

For over 12 years we have been providing domain name registration services to customers across South Africa.

Safe, Secure & Reliable

Our data centre boasts world-class biometric security, temperature control and industrial back-up generators. You'll enjoy peace of mind knowing your data is secure and always online.

Full Fail-Over Network

Our servers are connected to the internet via several different links and feature fully automated fail-over technology. Your website will remain online, even during certain network failures.

Fully Accredited Registrar

We're a fully accredited registrar with the South African domain name registry and we provide a range of other top level domains outside the .co.za namespace.

Local Currency

Because we're based in South Africa you won't have to pay for your domains in foreign currency and you can pick up the phone to speak to us at any time.

A domain name is a unique name registered on the internet for use with a website or email. For example, 'nexus.co.za' is our domain name. Once you register a domain name it is reserved exclusively for your use ‐ no one else can use it except you!

Web hosting services work by storing your website files in high-powered computers connected to a fast network. When someone types in your web address (such as www.nexus.co.za), the Internet connects to the web server holding your website files and then transfers your website information back to their computer.

You don't need any previous Linux or Windows experience for either. Most basic websites will work on either platform but if your website needs PHP (such as WordPress) you should choose Linux. If your website works on ASP or .NET, you'll need a Windows package.

If you're going to use a Content Management System such as WordPress or Drupal for your website, you will need at least one database for your website to work. If however you're planning a very basic HTML website, you probably won't need a database.

This depends on how big your website will be and how much email you plan on storing on our mail servers. If you're only starting out, try our Micro or Lite packages; you can always upgrade if your needs increase later.

  • Compliment/Testimonial
    "What an awesome web host. As a complete newbie I was very pleasantly surprised at the helpful support I received in setting up my website and email accounts and how easy it was to find my way around the web hosting control panel, admittedly with a little help from your staff at first. I now feel very comfortable working with my own website and I'll certainly recommend Nexus to all my friends and family and want to extend my thanks to the Nexus support team." - Kyle Gow - Edenvale
  • Compliment/Testimonial
    "Your staff were extremely knowledgeable about all Nexus product offerings and helped me distinguish between what I wanted, which option would be best based on my requirements and budget, were never impatient and at the end of the call I felt like I was in excellent hands. They were completely honest and direct and did not try and sugarcoat anything. I knew exactly what I was paying for. My call was answered within minutes and signup was an absolute pleasure..."- Anine Ehlers - Greenstone Hill
  • Compliment/Testimonial
    "From day 1, when I first contacted Nexus ISP several years ago , I was impressed. Pricing aside, client service is unequalled. The staff are simply amazing, with their unfailing friendliness, personal attention and helpfulness, and an absolute pleasure to do business with. I always unreservedly recommend Nexus to anyone looking for an DSL service provider." - Nicky Grieshaber - Pietermaritzburg
  • Compliment/Testimonial
    "As a small business working which started from my home I needed a voice service that would allow me to be flexible as the business grew and the ability to keep our number once we outgrew the home office. With Nexus VoIP we achieved exactly what we needed. My business now has several staff members and the hosted PBX option was the perfect addition to our telecoms needs. Thank you!" - Linda Mote - Boksburg
  • Compliment/Testimonial
    "Just wanted to say a big thank you to the staff at Nexus who helped me to transfer my web hosting from my previous ISP. I was very unhappy with the previous company and needed someone who could provide a stable and user-friendly hosting service, which is exactly what I now have at Nexus. Thanks and keep up the good work." - Candice Smith - Pretoria
