buy domain: Step by step guide for beginners

Are you looking for a guide to buy domain?

You are in the right place. Today, I’m going to show you step by step process of registering .KE domain on Truehost.

But before that, there are some things you need to take care of first.

Requirement before you buy domain

First, you need website name ideas. A list of at least 10 possible names. Why?

Because some of the names are taken. Meaning, someone else might have registered it. And the thing is, you cannot register a domain name that is already taken.

If you don’t have a list yet, here is an article I wrote on how to choose the best domain name. I recommend you read it first

Secondly, you need at least Ksh 500 on your MPESA account.

How to buy domain (step by step)

Did you know that over 70% of domain names registered in Kenya are from Truehost?

That is right, we are the best domain company in Kenya offering cheap but quality website services such as web hosting, email hosting, and reseller hosting among others.

For this reason, it makes more sense to buy domain from Truehost that with anyone else because we are the best at we do.

Step 1. Go to


You will see a search box like the one below


In the search box, type the name you wish to register and hit search. Two things will happen:

One, the name is available (not registered by anyone)


Or two, the website name is not available (already registered).


If it is taken, repeat the search process with a different name until you find an available domain name.

If it is available, see the next step.

Step 2: Click on the Buy It Now button to commence the domain registration process.


Step 3: domain configuration page

This is where you can review your domain. Get add-ons like ID protections, DNS management among others. domain configuration

Also, this is the place you can review the nameservers. And if you wish to use custom nameservers, do that here.
