Registering your domain

Last updated Jul 20, 2020

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.

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.
