How To Register A Domain Name – Update video
I am putting together a “How To” series for beginners on setting up your own website for business.
Naturally the first place to start is registering a domain name.
Of course if you already have an offline business, you have a business name and brand you will want to register that as your domain.
If on the other hand, you want to create your business from scratch, then you will want to give some thought as to what you will want to call it.
Going for an exact match domain or a more generic “brand” name is subject for another post and series, but suffice it to say, what you decide on, you will have to have some idea of the extension you will settle for, .com, .net or .org.
There are plenty of theories about the value of .com over .net or .org and certainly over all the other extensions like .info, .us, .co and more. Whatever your thoughts, you will have to decide on a domain name and extension while going through the process shown in the video above.
Once you find a domain name that is available, it is a matter of a few easy steps to reserve that domain and getting it pointed to the servers of your web host. I use NameCheap to register all my domains and there are any number of other services that will do it for you.
That is what the video above shows you how to do. So take a look and learn that first step.
