Frequently Asked Questions

In principle, you are free to choose the domain name. However, you cannot choose names that are in use by other organizations, or names that for various reasons are prohibited or reserved for technical, ethical or national considerations. You also have a duty to ensure that your registration of a domain name does not infringe another party's right to the same name. Remember that the responsibility always rests with you. Here, you can read more about choosing a name.
To find out if a name is available or to find out who registered a particular name, use our WHOIS Search tool which can be found on the home page of our website.
For domain registrants based in Pakistan, a domain fee of Rs. 1600 per year will be charged. For domain registrant or their registrar located outside Pakistan, a fee of $15.99 per domain per year is charged. The fee is charged on a biennial basis (two-year period) and can be paid up to a maximum of ten years.
Once the Registry System has been updated, the information in our database is shared with the Internet's zone files worldwide. This sharing process is called 'propagation', because the new information about your Domain Name spreads or propagates across the Internet. The zone files are propagated frequently, every few hours. We cannot control the rate at which the millions of servers on the Internet are updated, but generally your domain should be available to Internet users within a very short period.
Once a domain has been registered, its name can not be modified.
From time to time it is necessary to reach a contact person for the domain. This could be due to technical problems or disputes. In these situations, it is vital that the contact data is up to date. As the domain name holder, you are responsible for keeping your contact information updated.
