How to register:

At the beginning of the year, we have asked our online readers to register for the websites. At first there were small technical difficulties which have now been settled. For a better understanding, we have now set up a small guide, which will simplify your registration.

Here we go!

  1. You should see a window on your screen that looks like that in the appendix. Please read the information on this window or here in the appendix, which explains why we are doing this and how the registration is taking place.
  2. If you are not registered yet, click on "Login via".
  3. Another window will open: Please enter your e-mail address as well as a self-selected password (at least 3 letters and /or digits)
  4. Follow the instructions and enter the desired data.
    • Please Note: Remember to confirm your email. You won’t be able to access the website, without email confirmation!
  5. After your confirmation, it will take up to 10 seconds for the window to close. Then the login window will re-open - since you are now registered, click on “Login via” and enter your email and password. Now you should be able to read the article of your choice.
    Helpful Note: Depending on your browser, our programme will recognise your PC every time you turn on. Nevertheless, it will be necessary to log in again, because most service providers automatically switch off automatically from permanently engaged programmes at least once a month for security reasons. Therefore you should remember your password or write it down somewhere.

We would like to thank you for your loyalty in 2023 and wish you a good start into the New Year!

In 2017, Namibia Media Holdings, to which all publications belong, will implement a new strategy for the use of all newspaper websites. There will be a clear distinction between the free offer and a paid offer, the latter starting on February 1 in a different form than before and with additional services.

First of all, we would like to ask you to register on the website in January in order to continue reading the Internet edition free of charge. A corresponding note will appear on the website, the registration is via the NMH publishing portal and only has to be done once.

What changes from February 2017?

While the global and regional trend leads to the payment model for online newspaper news, which means that articles can either not be read or read completely without paying for them, the Namibian Sun offer will remain free, but can be used with a delay. This means that as of 1 February the contributions on the Namibian Sun website can be read free of charge and completely, but only at 12 noon. The prerequisite is the registration (see above). If you would like to have access to the news on the Namibian Sun website (including the PDF version of all pages as well as press releases, which are made online during the day), you have the following options:

  1. Subscribe to the electronic edition via the Namibian Sun website with the additional option of a home delivery of the paper output (only in city areas in Namibia).
  2. In Namibia: Buy the Namibian Sun paper issue daily, in which you will find a four-digit number code, which gives you access to all offers on the Namibian Sun website.
  3. In Namibia: Subscribe the Namibian Sun paper output delivered to your home every day (in city areas).
