.africa Premium Names

Some registries make additional revenue by charging for domains they deemed more valuable. Because of this sometimes we cannot not be totally sure of the price before purchase. If you request a .africa and we discover the domain is a premium domain we will ensure that we contact you before completing your order.


.africa Reserved Names

Domains are often reserved for future use and as such can cause false positives when searching for a domain. For example the domain may appear to be free and not in use, but in reality the domain name is reserved. The registry along with many other registry does this from time to time. If you request a reserved name we will not be able to register it for you but will refund your application fee in full.
