How to Register a Domain Name

Registering a Domain Name The Easy Way

Registering a domain name for your website is really easy and takes just three short steps. 

1.  Choose a Domain Name Registry.

This is the company you register your domain name with.  It is very important that you choose a good company.  Otherwise it can cause you a bunch of problems down the road.  I use Act Now Domains and have registered over 300 domains with them. 

They have been in business since 2001, are cheap and have great support.  I love their website builder so if you want a website I highly recommend them for that too. 

2.  Check Domain Availability.

To see how this part works and how easy it is, just enter the domain name you want into the free search box below to see if your domain name is available. 


If your name isn't available you will see similar domain names that are available. 

3.  Purchase a Domain Name

You will be taken through an easy checkout process and asked to pay for your domain name.  Registering a domain name is cheap to do these days.  The cost is just around $12/year or so and if you get a website your domain name is just $3.99. 

That's it!  You know now how to register a domain name.  It's easy to do so don't worry if you have never done it before.  It's very easy, safe and quick.
