How to Buy a Domain Name in Ghana

- After clicking Register a Domain, type the domain name you want to search. Read my article on how to choose the best domain name.
- If your domain name isn’t available, try other searches. If you still can’t get one which is available, use your local language or any other language of your choice and generate one for yourself.
- After your searches become successful, select your TLD and scroll down to Click to Continue. (The TLD is the letters immediately following the final dot in an Internet address. For instance .com, .org, or .net. A TLD identifies something about the website associated with it, such as its purpose, the organization that owns it or the geographical area where it originates.)
- A page will open that will allow you to enter your contact details. Afterwards, you’ll need to choose your mode of payment.
- With MTN Mobile Money and similar modes of payment, you only need to enter your phone number attached to the mobile money account. Afterwards, a code message will be sent to your phone in case of the MTN Mobile Money to allow cash out.
- Simple as that, you just bought your domain name with your mobile money account. Note that you need to be a registered subscriber of that mobile money service to be able to purchase your domain name with it.
If you have a PayPal account, you can choose PayPal from the modes of payment, and entering your PayPal Account details to buy.
