Availability Check

Whichever PK domain you desire to get, first, you have to check the availability of the domain.

Why?

It can be possible that another business might have already registered the domain you desire to book. Besides, two websites/ online businesses cannot have the same domain name worldwide as per the rules.

Just like a business name is its trademark, your domain identifies your website/ e-store. Therefore, having a distinct identity is a must to survive and protect your business/ website. So you cannot buy the already taken (and in use) domain.

However, two websites can have the same domain names if their extensions are different. For instance, xyz.com, xyz.com.pk, xyz.net, xyz.net.pk, xyz.org, etc., are all different domains. So you can register them.

Registration

If your chosen domain is available or you decide to get another name, now you need to hurry to register it. It is because thousands of individuals register domains every second, so get a PK domain matching your business niche before somebody else grab it.

Many companies and registrars provide direct registration services for the PK domain names with the Pakistani Domains Registry. That being said, search for a reliable domain providing agency to avoid any scams. In addition, various web hosting companies in Pakistan also assist with PK domain registration. If you find it suitable, you can purchase the web hosting & domain from the same place.

Whichever way you decide to go, place an order to register and get the domain.
