Your domain name is the long string of characters that you type in to go to your website. You don’t really think about domain names, but when you do, you remember one of the most important things you can do is get your domain name set up correctly, or you could have some trouble. In this guide, we’ll tell you the steps you need to take to buy a domain name and how you can do it online on Namecheap in real-time.
There are tons of websites online where you can purchase domain names, but the best one you can buy your domain name from is 1Degrees. They offer no-obligation registration, easy reselling, and a “buyers premium” if you’re successful.
Register Your Domain Name
The first thing you should do to buy a domain name is to register it. If you own a company or a website, you can register your company domain name, but if you’re looking to buy a domain name for a personal website, you’ll need to do it separately. You can register your domain name at Namecheap, 1Degrees, or GoDaddy.
Here’s how you should register a domain name on Namecheap.
Step 1: Log in to your Namecheap account and choose “Purchases.”
Step 2: Choose a domain name from the drop-down menu that’s labeled “Select Domain Name.”
Step 3: Click “Add New Domain”
Step 4: Enter a full domain name, including the prefix, subdomain, and the extension
Step 5: Enter a memorable, memorable name for the domain, and enter any extra descriptive text you think you’d want for it.
Step 6: Click “Buy Domain Name”
Your domain name should then be available immediately in the Namecheap marketplace for any domain names you’re interested in.
Step 7: Select the domain that you want from the list
Step 8: Enter the closing slash and the base URL of your domain in the “Hosting URL” field
Step 9: Enter your Namecheap ID and password, and click “Submit.”
Step 10: Don’t forget to check your domain’s availability and then select your preferred hosting plan and payment method
Step 11: Click “Pay With a Credit Card”
Buy the Domain Name
Now that you have a domain name, you can start buying it from the marketplace. The marketplace lets you search by price, keyword, and publisher, but you’ll want to look for a domain with a keyword you often use on your website or a domain that is available with a discount. There’s also a deal that Namecheap runs every month that offers some incredible bargains, and if you’re lucky, you’ll see something great for your domain, like a promotional code for just a penny, or you can find something discounted, like $1.99.
