our comprehensive FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) and answers
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
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. 1,900/- per year
for .com, net, .biz, .info domains. Note: .lk domains
cost much more! For .lk domains please contact the Sri Lanka
Domain Registry at www.nic.lk
