Attention all South African website owners and operators. Government regulations, published on Thursday, require all websites that end in “.za” to link to the department of health’s Covid-19 portal.
The regulations, published in the Government Gazette by communications minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams may, however, lead to confusion. Read the regulations here (PDF).
Clause 5.1.4 of the regulations, which have been issued in terms of the Disaster Management Act, state: “All Internet sites operating within the .zaDNA top-level domain must have a landing page with a visible link to www.sacoronavirus.co.za.”
