popular domain faqs

Here are some popular FAQs to help you with finding your domain.

What is a domain name?

The domain name is your website name and works as an address with which users on the internet can find your website. Computers use IP addresses to locate websites, but since this can be difficult for us humans to remember, domains provide an easier alternative for us. To create a domain name, you simply need to register the domain you want to use.

How often do I need to register and renew my domain name?

You only need to register once for your domain, although you will need to renew your domain name every year for a fee. This is to ensure the domain is being used, and the name isn’t being wasted. You can only renew your domain name once a year.

Why should I register my domain name as soon as possible?

There are a limited number of domains available, and once a domain has been registered, no one else can use that domain name to identify their website. Once you have registered your domain name, you can change your website provider without worrying about having to change your website or email addresses.

Which domain extension should I choose?

The most popular domains on the internet include .com, .net and .org. However, there are millions of domains already registered on these, making it more difficult to secure the right one for you. It’s a popular practise around the world to use the Internet Country Code of the country you reside in as your domain, such as .co.za, as this helps people recognise the region you operate in.

However, there are hundreds of domains available based on what your website is about and many of these are cheaper than the alternatives with plenty of domains available to register. HOSTAFRICA offers hundreds of domains to choose from, and we encourage you to browse through them to find the perfect domain for you.

What do I do if I do a domain check and my name is taken?

There are billions of websites around today, so don’t be alarmed if the domain name you wanted is already taken. The best method around this is to choose a different domain extension. Google will not penalise you in search results based on your extension, so your online performance will not suffer. You can benefit from a more specific and easier to remember domain for your business, website, or interest. For example, .lawyer can give a law firm credibility in their website name.
