Why do I need a .ls domain name and hosting for my website?
A .LS domain name gives your website instant credibility because it is the official country code for Lesotho. It also provides local IP address information to your visitors; this helps search engines like Google and Bing to route users who may be searching for websites related to Lesotho, directly to yours.
Does having a .ls domain name mean I have an actual business presence in Lesotho?
No, having a .ls domain name does not mean that you have an actual business presence in Lesotho, and using only a . LS domain cannot be used as evidence of such. However, you can use it to link your site to the country – which is likely – given the nature of your website. For example, if your site is about Lesotho, then a.LS domain name would be appropriate.
Can I register any word as a .ls domain name?
Yes, any word is valid for registration unless specifically excluded in the terms of registration.
