Africa Domain Names
Most frequent questions and answers about African domain names
A domain name is the address for your website. Your web address is how your customers can find your website on the internet. Websites are hosted on a web server. Domain names are what connects a website to a server. Every domain has to be unique so that the web server knows where to point the user to.
You can check available domain names using our domain name checker at
Domain names are made up of the domain extension or TLD (top-level domain) and the customer defined domain part (the ‘example’ part of ‘example.com’). When someone tries to access your website by typing in ‘example.com’ the DNS server will locate its IP address by first going to the group of .com domains,
and then searching for the .com domain labelled ‘example’ to find your website.
Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs) correspond to a country, territory, or other geographic location.
For example: .uk represents the United Kingdom, .fr is for France, .ca for Canada.
If you want to host a website, ideally you’re going to need both web hosting and a domain name. On a basic level, a domain name is the address of your business, while web hosting is the actual building.
In a way it is like software and hardware, to get the most – you need them both. When they’re working together, it makes for a successful path. That’s why it is recommended to both register a domain and use hosting services from a single provider.
You can receive these two services from different providers, but it’s not recommended as there might be roadblocks that have the potential to eat up a lot of your precious time. That and it purchases the services much more expensive!
