The .kiev.ua domain registration
.KIEV.UA is a domain for a metropolitan business. The zone is a transliteration of the Kyiv name and works simultaneously with the .KYIV.UA zone. The domains are mirrored, so when registering the name of your site in the first zone, you reserve a similar available name in the second. We advise you not to miss the opportunity and take two zones at once. A domain in the .KIEV.UA zone can be registered both by individuals and legal entities without providing any documents.
For many people, the advantage is that a domain in the .KIEV.UA zone can be registered in Cyrillic. To register .KIEV.UA, you don't need to register a trademark unlike with the .UA domain.
Please note that when you register a domain-synonym in the .KYIV.UA zone, the same name, but in paired .KIEV.UA zone is automatically reserved. If someone has registered a domain in an alternative zone before you, when ordering the verification system will recognize the domain name as unoccupied, but later its registration may be denied.
When registering a domain, remember – the ideal domain name contains between 3 and 15 characters. It is important that the name of the site is easily remembered, reflects your activities and contains keywords. At the same time it is best to avoid hyphens, dashes and double letters.
You can purchase a domain in the .kiev.ua zone for 1 to 9 years. At the moment, the registration price is 9.000000, transfer is 11.250000. You can renew the domain for the next year at a price of 11.250000.

Tips for Choosing a Domain
Step 1Research the market
Before you register a domain for your business, you should pay attention to the names your competitors are using. Avoid registering names that are coherent with the existing ones. Absent-minded customers can make a mistake and place an order on a different website instead of yours.
Step 2Make sure the domain is easy
You should register a domain name that is easy to remember and spell. Avoid using double words, numbers, dashes and similar characters. The easier the website address is, the higher the odds are that a potential user will find you in particular and not your competitors.
Step 3Check the domain history
A domain name which had been previously registered can be either useful or harm your website. A domain that has been under the sanctions applied by search engines can compromise the reputation of your business. Check out our article that can help you when checking the domain history.
Step 4Register domains in different zones
Your business idea may attract other entrepreneurs. Some dishonest competitors may use your reputation and popularity to register the same name in a different zone while stealing your clients. By purchasing domains in other zones and redirecting traffic from those domains to the main one, you broaden your business’ outreach on the internet.
