Registering your domain

Written by Vicky Etherington

What type of powerful domain name is going to work best for you?

Once you have had a look at choosing a powerful domain name, you want to dive into the nitty-gritty and register your domain name.

I promised I would direct you to a place where you can buy domain names at a reasonable price. I use NameCheap.  There’s a couple of reasons for this.

  1. They have great prices for domains
  2. I like their domain management interface
  3. They offer a free year of WhoIsGuard which means people can’t see who has registered that particular domain. I like the privacy of that so you’re not bombarded with search engine optimisation offers in the first year of registration.

The steps to registering your domain

1. Search for your domain in the search field on NameCheap.

2. If it is available, go ahead and add it to your basket using the icon next to it.

3. Click on the View Cart button.

4. Include your promo code in the field on the right. At the moment, you can use DOMAINS2GO. You can leave the other settings at their default which will give you the free year of WhoisGuard.

5. Confirm your order. At this point, you will be given an option to log in or create a new account.

6. Follow the instructions to check out.

7. Keep the login details of your account safe so you always have access to your domain name and the management of it.

Congratulations! You now have your own domain name!
