Are you looking for a guide to buy .co.ke 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 .co.ke 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 .co.ke domain (step by step)
Did you know that over 70% of co.ke 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 .co.ke domain from Truehost that with anyone else because we are the best at we do.
Step 1. Go to https://truehost.co.ke/kenya-country-level-domains/
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 co.ke domain. Get add-ons like ID protections, DNS management among others.
Also, this is the place you can review the nameservers. And if you wish to use custom nameservers, do that here.
If satisfied, click the continue button on the bottom right corner.
Step 4: Review and Checkout
Review the product in your cart
But before you checkout, choose your preferred currency
And if you have a discount code, input it here and click Validate code

If you are a returning customer, there is no need to fill in the details because we already have them. Just click on Existing Customer to login.
