FAQs

Frequently asked questions

How long does registration take?
Your domain is registered as soon as you order it (with the exeption of .zw domains that can take upto 72 hours to register), but it can take between 24 and 72 hours for it to appear online.
Do I own the domain name ?
The domain is always registered in your name, or, if you’re working on someone’s behalf, your customer’s name.
How can I pay for my domain names and do I get an invoice?
You can pay using a credit/debit card, Paypal or Paynow. We do not accept cheque or cash. You will automatically receive an invoice by email and you can view and print your invoices at any time through your uHostAfrica Clientzone Area.
Can I transfer domain names at any time?
Your Clientzone Area gives you the ability to transfer most domain names at any time, whether to another uHostAfrica account or to another hosting company. Some domain name extensions will have a 60 day period where you cannot transfer in or out. We will never charge you for transferring out, as we think our domain hosting is so feature-filled that you won’t want to transfer out.
