Registering a Domain Name

How To Register a Domain Name.

Registering a domain name is the first step in setting up your own online business. The process is quick and easy.There are countless registrars where you can do this, but the one I use and recommend is Namecheap.

I’ll also recommend that you totally avoid using GoDaddy for registering domains, or for web hosting.
(Yes, I know that they’re the most popular, and they do all the cool adverts with girls jumping up and down, etc. I still suggest you avoid them. See NoDaddy.com for many reasons why.)

When you select a registrar, you’ll have to set up an account with them.
This is free to do, and you can register as many names as you like on the same account.

Here’s the process for registering a .com domain name with Namecheap.

Once you have registered your domain name, you have to connect it to a website.

I’ll be covering this in another blog post.

Note:
You can’t register an Australian domain name with Namecheap.
The process of registering an Australian domain name is more involved, and you have to have a registered Australian business.
