ae Domain Registration: Buy Cheap .ae domains via SeekaHost.app
By James Flarakos | January 2, 2023
Looking for the cheapest .ae domain name registration services?
You may have noticed that the .ae domain is becoming more popular but is more expensive than other more common domain extensions such as .com or .net for example.
At SeekaHost we always try to give our customers the best value for money. That’s why we are currently offering the .ae domain name for a competitive £37.50!
As you can see, the .ae domain is not the most expensive domain extension with .io and .tech being even more pricey.
So, you may be wondering what determines the cost of a domain extension?
Domain name registrars like SeekaHost reserve domains that their customers want to purchase through a domain name registry, which controls top-level domains (TLDs). Nominet and VeriSign are established domain name registries that charge registrars per domain name.
The main factors affecting the domain extension price is support cost as certain domain extension registrations may require special support or configuration before they can be purchased.
The wholesale prices of domain extensions are negotiated between ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names) and the domain registry and is also affected by the popularity of a domain name extension as well as its demand.
Can I buy the cheapest .ae domains with SeekaHost?
As explained above, SeekaHost has to accept the wholesale price that domain registries charge for domain extensions. However, as a domain registrar it can offer the most competitive pricing in the .ae domain market, which it does.
At SeekaHost.app you can get an .ae domain name as cheap as £37.50 or $50 and you can flexibly choose your domain renewal periods between 1-5 years as well as adjusting or cancelling your web hosting plans without a minimum term.
Why you need an .ae Domain Name Registration?
If you are particularly looking for the .ae domain, the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the United Arab Emirates, then you are likely to be interested in targeting this market. The great news is that the.ae domain registration can be undertaken by anyone. The domain registrar does not have to be based there or do business there.
Because the .ae domain has become available later than others from 1992, it offers a higher chance of providing more domain name registrations than the .com or .net domain for example
Anyone interested in registering an .ae domain may be more likely to find their desired domain name than with the .com extension that’s been around since 1985 and extremely popular worldwide.
So, if you’re thinking of doing business in places like Abu Dhabi or Dubai then the .ae domain will help you target those Arabic markets better online.
With an .ae domain extension your website is more likely to rank well in local SERPs and website visitors from the UAE will trust this extension to be more tailored to their local requirements and searches.
