Domain name registration in Zimbabwe is becoming a thing as the country becomes aware of the vast need to do business online. Just 5 years ago, having a website was seen as a luxury and very few companies invested in one. Today, if you are not online; you are not in business. The internet has a wide reach and you cannot miss out on the opportunity to reach new people.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is an internet address/name that people use to find you. If it wasnt for domain names we would be using numbers to locate web pages (trust me that would have been work), so essentially a domain name converts those numbers for us in words we can understand. At the end of the day you have domain names like tremhost.com, tremhost.co.zw and tr.co.zw.

Which TLD should you get?

You now know what a domain name is, but you are probably confused with which one you should get. The are many tlds (extensions) e.g .co.zw, .com, .net, .org, .biz, .co.za, .info and bazillion others so which one should you take? Well, it depends. Which tld you should get depends largely on your business location. Are you operating in Zimbabwe? Great, a .co.zw is good for you! You operating in South Africa? Get a .co.za. You are international? Get .com!

The honest truth is that you can get away with any tld but if you are targeting a specific location then you are far better off with a location based tld. A .co.zw, .ac.zw or .org.zw is what we call a country level tld and they are really good if you are based in that particular country. Org tld is good if you run an organisation or some charity then .net is good if you have some kind of network or networking going on. You see where this is going? Biz, for business, .co for company, there is an abundance of tlds you can choose for your domain name. In my opinion, if you do not have an international market and do not intend to then stick with local tlds: .co.zw, .co.ac, .org.zw.

Domain Name Billing Cycle

A domain name, unfortunately is not bought once and keep it forever, no. A domain name is renewed every year so you are going to find yourself being billed every year. There is an option of course to register a domain name for up to 10 years depending with your registrar.

Can you resell domain names for a profit?

Yes. Domain names are a major profit point these days. There are 2 ways to make money from reselling domain names:

  1. Find nice discounts from a domain name registrar and put a markup then register for your clients.
  2. Register a domain name then sale it for a higher price on sedo.com

Some people are making 6 figures out of this, the determining factor for success is largely based on research, timing and sometimes just lick.
