Registering a domain - frequently asked questions

What are permitted characters for website domain names?
Valid characters for Sri Lankan and other extensions are letters A through to Z of the English alphabet and the numbers 0 through to 9. You are also able to use hyphens (-), but your domain cannot begin or end in a hyphen, nor can you have two hyphens in a row.
Spaces and special characters (such as !, $, and similar) can't be used. It doesn't matter which registrar you use to search for a name, the character guidelines remain the same.

What number of characters can I use in my new domain name?
The maximum length you can use is 63 characters (Sri Lankan and otherwise). Web domain names are not case sensitive, which means you can access and display your name in advertising in upper or lower case; or even a combination of both.

How do I perform a domain name search and check URL availability?
Use the domain name search facility above to check the registry database. Search results will be displayed and you will then have the option to continue with registering your chosen name if it is available to acquire.

Are there any additional purchase costs in your domain registration price?
There are absolutely no hidden fees. All purchase prices include registration and full registrar management. However hosting fees may apply.

You'll be able to keep track of them all through our secure online domains management interface. Start your name search now and find your perfect name.

What does it actually mean to 'buy a domain name'?
