When choosing a domain registrar consider the following
1.Support and Technical know how
One of the most important qualities for a great domain registrar. When a buyer buys from some ISP companies, companies that do not specialize in the service, remember those companies are in most cases ill-equipped in terms of technical customer support.
Consider specialist in the industry, companies always innovating to offer more superior services, can never go wrong with Truehost Kenya.
2.Availability of other supporting services like web and Email hosting.
It can be hectic to register a domain with one company then get hosting or any other service from another company. Consider what will happen when renewing two services instead of one.
Be aware of domain registrars with cunning pricing strategy, they lower their domain prices in a bid to get customers but give no information on renewal fees such as Godaddy, you may buy a domain at $7 only to have its renewal fee at $18, that makes the total cost of ownership for a period of 2 years to be $25.
Consider going for domain providers with guaranteed renewal fees despite the offers; look like companies like Name.com, Kenya Websites Experts, Truehost Kenya, Sasahost, CloudPap
Take the fairest price considering all the other factors.
