If you want to learn more on domains and domain registration and how to buy your domain here in Sri Lanka, please read our comprehensive FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) and answers below:
What is a domain name?
A domain name tells people (and the computers they use) how to find your homepage on the Internet. Each domain name is assigned to a numerical IP (Internet Protocol) address by your host provider. Since people remember names better than numbers, the domain name, eg. www.yourname.com, translates this number into words.
In whose name is the domain registered?
The domain is registered in your name. Simply send us the domain register details.
How long does the process of domain registration take?
Nowadays, domains names can be registred in minutes! However, in general, it takes 12-24 hours after the payment is received for your domain to become accessible worldwide. Sometimes, this can take longer due to the delays in the domain getting propogated worldwide.
Can the domain name become operational sooner than 12 hours?
Yes. The registry has to add your domain name to root servers but nowadays, this is generally activated very fast.
How much does the domain registration cost?
The cost of domain registration is Rs. 1,950/- per year for .com, net, .org, .biz, .info domains. Note: .lk domains cost much more! For .lk domains please contact the Sri Lanka Domain Registry at www.nic.lk
How can I pay for my domain or domains?
You can pay through Dialog EzCash , Payza or through a wire transfer from your bank or you may deposit the money into our bank account. Please contact us for bank details.

Can I buy a domain name from you and host my website somewhere else?

Can my domain be forwarded (domain forwarding, domain pointing) to another web site which is already active?

What is FREE domain parking?
