Buying Domain Names
If a participating workshop participant doesn't have their own domain name they'll need to buy one to participate in the workshop.
I recommend that people purchase their domain name with Hover.com. They provide a good user experience and the Office 365 administration console offers Hover-specific help files to help you enter MX, TXT and other administration records. Sign-up here: https://hover.com/gljvsm7R
What If the Organization Doesn't Have a Credit Card?
Pre-Paid Credit Cards
In some countries the particpating organizations won't have access to a credit card. I recommend that they get a pre-paid credit card if possible, because buying a domain name with a credit card is the cheapest option. Check with your local bank.
Other Payment Options
If a credit card is not an option here are some domain name registrars that take other forms of payment like Mpesa, Moneygram or Paypal.
NOTE: we have not tested these services and are unable to offer a full endorsement.
Check out these options:
Uganda Bank of Africa sells pre-paid credit cards with a minimum balance of US$9.00
This is a good solution for organizations that want to buy their domain names from a cheaper international service.
