Domain Registration in Kenya

Domain Registration in Kenya

Domain Registration in Kenya

Domain registration is the first step of establishing your online presence. A domain name is a unique identifier of a website or an internet resource. Under each domain is an IP address of the server hosting a website’s content such that, when you type the domain name on a browser’s address bar, you are directed to the content in your hosting account. It is this content that we call web pages.

The Kenyan Domain Registration market is one of the most interesting domain registration markets in the world. Domain Registrars in Kenya engage in domain price wars at their detriments. As result of unsustainable domain name registration prices, domain registrars turn to high renewal fees to recoup their earlier loses. Truehost Kenya does the reverse. We sell and renew domain names at the same price. Infact we make it easier for you to renew unlike any other registrar. Below is our pricing for domain registration, renewal and transfer to us:

Domain registration tips

Domain registration tips

Tips for the best domain registration practice.

Choose your business or organization name as the domain name.

It’s very important that your domain name and your business name are the same. Why, in this era of brands you can’t afford to feed two beasts – a domain name and a company name.

Keep your domain name short

Yes, there is no good domain name anymore after all .com have been sold. – that is no excuse. Get a short domain name – under 12 characters or less is ideal.

Make sure your domain name is easy to remember

Can be unique, simple, and memorable – any of the three can serve you better but all the three can combine for a perfect choice of a domain.

Stick to popular extensions

.com, .net, .co.ke, .com.ng, .co.uk. .in, .org, . are relatively common and easy to remember. Unless you have need to use a niche extension like .cloud, .io, .hotels, .travels .lawyers, .info – stick to the popular extension s so that it is easy to remember for people.

Buy alternative domain extension for your domain

If your domain is a .com consider buying a .co.ke or.com.ng or .co.uk or .net just to protect your brand. It may cost a fortune much later to rebuy the domain extension when it will be hurting your brand.

Domain Name Privacy

Domain Name Privacy

Domain Name Privacy option allow masking of WHO IS information on a particular Domain Name. WHO IS record refer to a summary of domain name ownership information, domain name hosted server, Domain name technical and administrative contacts, domain name registration and renewal date, domain name registrar information.

Domain name privacy substitute real record by records of a domain name privacy company. Unfortunately only a few domain name extensions or TLD support this option. Currently Kenya country code level – .KE TLD doesn’t support domain name privacy option.

Check if your domain name has the domain name privacy addon in the Truehost Kenya client area – domain name privacy can be free or at a fee.
