How to register a domain name
A domain name is an essential aspect of a company’s Internet identity. It is used in the website address, server address or as an identifier of professional email addresses.
Choose a domain extension
Some of the most popular domain extensions are .com, .net, .org, .africa and others. The type of domain you choose depends on your use case.
Some domain extensions are listed below:
- .com – great for businesses and businesses
- .net – intended for Internet networks but popular as an alternative where .com is not available
- .org – used by non-profit and non-governmental organizations
- .info – intended for informative websites
- .biz – designed specifically for businesses
- .africa – for any entity that wishes to identify with the African continent. Perfect for Ghanaian companies looking to sell beyond Ghana.
