Free .np domain registration

NP domain registration service is provided by Mercantile Communications completely free of charge to people and company in Nepal. This article shows step-by-step procedure to register and host a free .np domain/website.

Here is the step-by-step guide:

1) Go to domain registration website: http://register.mos.com.np

2) Check Domain Availability

Note that, you should choose domain with your name (for personal domain) or your company name (for corporate domain). If the domain name has anything else than your name/your company name then it will be rejected.

Check Domain Availability

3) Add Domain to Basket

Once you find your domain to be available, then drag it to ‘Add Domain to Basket’ section from ‘Check Domain Availability’ section.

4) Register your Username

Choose your username that you will be using to login to the site. Enter your email address as well. You will get a confirmation email to this email address after you click the ‘Register’ button.

Register Username

5) Check your email for confirmation

After you click the ‘Register’ button, you will get an email with information about required documents for domain registration along with a confirmation link.

Your domain is not active until you submit/upload all the required documents. There is a link present in the confirmation email. You have click on that link to upload the required documents.

Below are the required documents for free .np domain registration:

Domain request for personal usage

i) A scanned copy of both sides of the applicant’s citizenship certificate or passport or driving license or voter’s card, or

ii) NRN ID Card for Non-Resident-Nepalese, or

iii) Nepalese resident visa for foreign nationals.

Domain request for Company or Organization

i) A scanned copy of an application letter written in the company/organization’s letter-head pad, stamped and signed by an authorized officer.

ii) A scanned copy of the company/organization registration certificate issued by Office of the Company Registrar, Nepal.

Note:

i) Only JPG or PNG extensions are accepted for uploading.

ii) Your domain will be activated within three working days.

iii) Your request for domain will be rejected if you have not submitted all the necessary documents as stated above. Once a request is rejected, you will have to reapply for the same domain or a new domain.

6) Click on the link present in your confirmation email

7) Enter your first name, last name and password

After you click on the confirmation link, a new page will open asking for your First Name, Last Name, and Password as shown in image below. Enter your first and last name and your desired password. You will be using this password while logging in this site (i.e. register.mos.com.np).

Register

8) Login to the site

After you enter your first name, last name and password then you will be redirected to login page (Login Page). Login with your username and password. Note that, you have created your username from Step 4 and your password from Step 7 as shown above.

9) Enter Administrative Contact details

For personal website, you can add your own contact details.

Admin contact details

For company website, you also have to add your organization contact details.

Company contact details

10) Upload required files

After you enter your contact details from the page shown above, then you will be redirected to a page from where you can upload the necessary documents listed in Step 5.

For personal website, you only need to upload a scanned copy of both sides of the applicant’s citizenship certificate or passport or driving license or voter’s card.

For company/organization website, you need to upload two files:

i) A scanned copy of an application letter written in the company/organization’s letter-head pad, stamped and signed by an authorized officer.

ii) A scanned copy of the company/organization registration certificate issued by Office of the Company Registrar, Nepal.

NOTE: Supported Files Details

1. Each file must be less than 800KB in size.

2. Only jpg and png formats are supported

3. Rename files before uploading as your-domain.com.np_citizenship.jpg, your-domain.com.np_license.jpg, your-domain.com.np_companyregistration.jpg.

“your-domain.com.np” means the domain name that you just registered.

11) Fill up Nameserver fields

In the same page where you will have to upload the required documents, you will also find a form to fill up the primary, secondary, and tertiary Name Server.

Nameserver information is required to point your domain to a hosting server. Hosting server means the server where you will be hosting/putting your website’s files.

There are many hosting servers available. Some of the popular paid hosting servers are hostgator.com, bluehost.com, godaddy.com, etc.

There are free web hosts available as well like awardspace.com, freehostia.com, 000webhost.com, etc.

For example: If you are hosting your website’s files in awardspace.com then the nameserver for it will be:

Primary Name Server = ns1.awardspace.com
Secondary Name Server = ns2.awardspace.com

That’s all.

After you have uploaded the required documents and updated the nameserver information, the Mercantile team will verify your application and inform you whether your application for the domain name is approved or rejected within 2-3 working days.

Hope this helps. Thanks.

  • Hi Dilhari,

    Awardspace.com is a free web hosting provider. Similarly, Freehostia.com is also a free web hosting provider. You can see their service plan and choose any one of them.

    When you sign up in their site, you can go to Domain Manager section and add your .np domain there.

    Thanks.

    AFAI understood, you do NOT get ANY web space, they just “register” your domain name, BUT you can get web space for FREE by signing up with some web hosting company.
