Registering your domain

3 June 2018

Once you have had a look at choosing a powerful domain name, you want to dive into the action steps to 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 Domain Privacy 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. You can leave the settings at their default which will give you the free year of WhoisGuard. There’s no need for you to purchase any of the add-ons. Your SSL certificate and email addresses will be available for you through your hosting.

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.

It doesn’t cost anything more to purchase through an affiliate link, and I use any commission payouts to promote free challenges to ensure I’m able to reach and help as many entrepreneurs like you as possible. I will only ever recommend products or services which I myself use and trust.
