Domain Registration in Africa

Please enter the domain name(s) you would like to search, differentiating them by a space or on a separate line. Select the country extension(s) and click Search.

Once you have chosen your domain name(s), please fill out a registration and payment form. We accept all major credit cards, PayPal, and bank transfers (in U.S. dollars and Euro).

A purchase of a domain name entitles you to email and Web URL forwarding for existing accounts, as well as DNS record administration (A, MX, CNAME records). You may also be interested in our value-priced hosting plans for Windows and Linux systems; they can be purchased together with a domain name..

Please note that some domain extensions have additional requirements imposed by each Domain Registry of America; these are indicated with the question mark symbol . Click on the symbol to see the requirements.
