Why Should I register the .KE Domain?

The second level .ke domain was rolled out last year and anyone operating a business, institution in Kenya is advised to register for the .ke domain.

  • Security: .KE registration offers an opportunity to identify your site and prevent another individual or company to register a similar domain name as that of your institution to misuse it for cybersquatting, or for their personal gain.

  • Exclusivity: Your domain name retains exclusivity and avoids cases of domain hacking or theft of Intellectual property rights as someone else can register a similar domain name to that of yours, redirecting/ confusing people to their site instead of yours

  • Reliability: Registering for the .ke domain makes your Institution’s name easily remembered

  • Affordability: Registering your domain will make your institution be identifiable in the Internet, increasing your chances visibility thus cutting advertising costs. Many site engines detect sites with their own domain names. In the long run, not registering your domain name might cause you to pay for it an exorbitant fee in future for a defense registration

  • Trust: Having the .ke domain will foster trust and confidence with the locals (in this case Kenya) as it has a distinct association to the Country

  • Added Advantages: Members who register for the .ke domain through the KENET portal will have their website hosted free of charge!
