Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Domain Name?
Computers and servers on the internet speak to each other using a series of numbers called IP Addresses, these can be though of as "gps coordinates" of the internet.
As these IP addresses are difficult to remember on a daily basis, domain names were created to make these addresses easier to remember, much like the address of your home.
A domain name is used to identify your website and allow people to find you on the internet, or to locate businesses, organizations, or other enterties on the internet in an easy-to-remember way.
A domain name is the foundation of your website (www.your-domain-name.africa) as well as your email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). Using a well thought up domain name allows your customers to identify and remember you more easily on the Web.
A great benefit of using your own domain name is that regardless of how many times you change your website hosting provider, your Email and website address will always remain the same.
I don't have a website yet, why do I need a domain name now?
Registering your domain name now ensures that you own the domain name that may not otherwise be available when you want it.
Once registered, the domain name is yours, provided the domain renewal fees are paid each year.
You can park the domain, use it, sell it or lease it to other individuals or companies.
Domain parking is included free with all our domain name registrations and transfers.
