Choosing a .ke domain registrar

While the choice of a .ke domain registrar, or where to register a .ke domain name is dependent on many factors.

For instance, the .ke domains follow the 3R method where there is a registry, registrars, and registrants.

Consequently, one has to choose among the many registrars available. The factors to consider include:

1. Pricing of the .ke domains.

Eventually, almost all registrars have a very similar price for the .ke domains; and so there is no need to pay extra amount for a standard service.

2. Registration period offered.

Some .ke registrars allow you to register for a period of more than one year.

3. Expiration grace period

KeNIC allows some grace period once the domain expires; and hence most registrars depend on the registry to put down an expired domain.

4. Ease of domain Transfer, and fees

Since most registrars allow you to transfer your domain any time you want, and in most cases it is free. However, some charge for transfers.

5. Addon services

On the positive side check the add-on services that your registrar offers for free

6. Hidden fees

In fact, avoid registrars who charge hidden fees on domains. This could include undisclosed costs such as taxes.
