I love They solved a big pain for me personally and I’m sure they did for many other Zimbabweans out there for whom domain registration was nothing short of painstakingly slow. Name essentially introduced the automated registration of domains in Zimbabwe back in September 2013.

So it was great receiving news today that they have upgraded their platform to make it easier for people to pay for and manage their domains. Domains can be paid for using the Paynow payments gateway which accepts mobile money payments using EcoCash and Telecash. Those not in Zim however still have the Paypal option.

On the new Name, the startup’s customers can now search for and register (for the non-profit people reading this) and You can also apparently now check for the availability of, and .zw. No, you still can’t register a .zw. And why you would be checking for the availability I have no idea and don’t want to know.

Apart from that here are the other improvements the startup’s Marketing Director, Isaac Maposa told us:

  • An API to allow web developers/ designers to integrate their platforms with
  • Instant name server changes.
  • Prices from as low as $1.99/yr to cater for web designers/developers, hosts and ISPs who register domains for their clients through

Head of over here to check that the new site.

    I wonder why we talk about tech start ups we dont refer to these guys as a success. It seems everyone is look at the flashy startups with all their hype even though they r still operating from a startup hub or participating in a competition. Yet we fail to give the necessary respect to companies like
    More features and expansion please. Congratulations

    Kudos for this interface/functionality upgrade, the previous interface was a bit amateurish and made me turn to the WebDev guys for better service. Will be giving it another shot.

    1. Isaac says:

      Thanks Hey. Yes our previous interface was less than ideal. Will be glad to hear your feedback after you give it a try. Just shot us an email.

    Do you also do web hosting? Can I transfer my registered domain (with you) to another Service Provider and at what cost in terms of time and money?

    1. Isaac says:

      Hi Taraz,

      Yes we do offer Web Hosting, though it’s not yet integrated on, Yes you can transfer your domain to any provider. We do not charge for domains being transferred out. The time depends on the New Registar you are transferring to, as for us once you request to transfer we will immediately send the release note to your new Registrar.
