FAQ - Your questions? We got answers!
What is the domain name system (DNS)?
The Domain Name System (DNS) helps users to find their way around the Internet. Every computer on the Internet has a unique address – just like a telephone number – which is a rather complicated string of numbers. It is called its “IP address” (IP stands for “Internet Protocol”). IP Addresses are hard to remember. The DNS makes using the Internet easier by allowing a familiar string of letters (the “domain name”) to be used instead of the arcane IP address. So instead of typing 126.96.36.199, you can type www.bitsimba.com It is a “mnemonic” device that makes addresses easier to remember.
What details do you need to register a domain?
We need the name, address and contact details of the person or company the domain name is to be registered to. We also need to take your payment details (MPESA, Paypal etc.) so we can process your registration. Payment by credit card is preferred since we can process the domain name immediately.
I already have a domain name registered – can I transfer my domain to you?
Yes – you can transfer a domain name to Bitsimba. Follow this link to see our Domain Name Transfer pricing: https://bitsi.mba/transfer
If I register a domain name is it mine for life?
You will be the owner of the domain name as long as you pay the annual fees. When the domain name nears expiry you will normally be given the chance the renew the registration for a further period (usually 1 year). If you do not renew the domain name, it may be deleted and released for re-registration by other people!

Which domain name suffix should I choose?
The majority of popular suffixes are available to anyone (business or personal). Some are classed as International domains such as .com, .org and .net and others are classed as Kenyan domains such as .co.ke and .or.ke. There is no real difference in their function as all are visible from anywhere in the world. However, the international ones can signify a more international bias in business and the Kenyan ones, a Kenyan bias. The most popular domain suffixes at present in the Kenyan are probably .com and .co.ke, although all the previously mentioned suffixes are also widely used for both business and personal use.
What’s the benefit of a .KE domain?
We think having a .KE domain is a great choice for so many reasons. We’ve listed a few them below:
- .KE domains add local relevance to your online identity. Users, and customers, will immediately be able to see that you’re a Kenyan brand
- 4 in 5 people in the Kenyan have a preference for websites with a .KE domain when searching or buying online
- .KE domains may rank higher for searches made in the Kenyan
Be part of a growing market: the Kenyan’s Internet economy is growing at a much faster rate than the wider Kenyan economy, meaning it has never been more important to get you or your business online
