Supporting Documents

Some of the Domain Name extensions require “Supporting Documents” in order for them to be
registered. These are:

go.ke

This domain requires supporting documents from the Department of Government IT Services
(GITS) at the Ministry of Finance. GITS should give an Authority Letter to show that the
Entity is a valid Government institution or Agency and authorized to register the domain name.

ac.ke

KENIC will require either a copy of the Certificate of Registration from the relevant
Ministry, a copy of the College Charter or a copy of the Act of Parliament that was passed to
establish the Institute. The documents MUST bear the name of the Entity. The document should
classify the Entity as a Tertiary Institution: Polytechnic, Technical Institute, College or
University.

sc.ke

KENIC will require a copy of the Certificate of Registration from the Ministry of Education.
The document MUST also bear the name of the Entity. The document should classify the Entity as
a Kindergaten, Primary or Secondary School.

All domains that require supporting documents will generate a ticket that will only be closed
by the KENIC Registry Services once the Supporting Documents have been received. Only when the
Ticket is closed will the domain be published.
