In this article I’m explaining how to register domain name. Domain Name & website name both are same, so don’t get confused. Domain name like facebook.com, bestdigitalmarketingtutorials.com, abc.us, school.org etc. Domain name are used in URL. For Example, In the URL http://www.bestdigitalmarketingtutorials.com, the domain name is bestdigitalmarketingtutorials.com.
URL full form is Uniform Resource Locator. In URL four parts includes:
http/https, www, bestdigitalmarketingtutorials, com.
First, http/https full form is hyper text transfer protocol/ hyper text transfer protocol secure version.
Second, www full form is World Wide Web. WWW is an information space where website can be access by domain name via Internet.
Third, bestdigitalmarketingtutorials is domain name
Fourth, .com is extension. There are several types of domain extensions. The most common domain extensions are .com, .org, .net. These are top level domains. .orgs domain extension used by nonprofit organization, Ngo’s and school. .com domain extension represents the word “commercial”. This is most widely used extension in the world. Most business prefers .com domain. .net domain extension represents the word “network” and most commonly used by internet service providers, web hosting companies and other. There are other top level domains like .gov for government, .US for US military. There are countries code domains also. If you want to target to particular country audience then you buy that country domain extensions like .us for America websites, .co.uk for United Kingdom websites. These domains also open on other countries but target audience is only one country. But .com domain extension is for global.
For Example – If you create blog/website for US news then choose .us domain extension. Through this domain US audience will target. Let you create blog/website for valentine day messages then choose .com domain because valentine day celebrate mostly countries. So they need valentine messages.
Now I’m explaining how to register domain step by step with screenshots.
Now you see unlimited websites for register domain. Don’t open first four websites these are paid advertisements. On first 4 websites mentioned Ad below url. I have selected sixth website for register domain whose name is godaddy.com. You will select any website for register domain.
Mostly people choose domain name according to website topic. Like, if you create photography website then you will register domain name photography.com. But mostly time you face this type of problem which mentioned in above picture “Sorry, funnypic.com is taken. It means person already buy this domain (this is register domain). Now you have two options. First option, Book any other extension domain which mentioned in above picture except .com. Second option, change domain name and search again. Like,
NOTE: There is no space and no capital letter in domain name.
4. Click on Select option
After clicking on Select option, green right mark will show in place of Select option. Now you can see one line mentioned below Continue to Cart (upper right hand side corner) “1 domain selected”. It means now your domain is selected.
5. Click on Continue to Cart
There is no need of Privacy Protection. It’s just an optional feature. So don’t waste your money. If you think your personal details will publish in front of others. Don’t worry in coming steps, I’ll tell you how to get rid of this.
First option is Website Builder. It means you create your website with the help of godaddy and it will charge cost. If you create blogger through Google, it is absolutely free and there is no need of Website Builder. So, choose Google blogger this is best option for starting website & absolutely free. In the coming article, I'll explain how to create Google Blogger.
Now come to second option, Linux Web Hosting. It means you create website and host your website. Hosting refers to a server where all your website data stored. So, hosting is mandatory for all websites/blogs. Without hosting you can’t run website. Hosting is paid. There are unlimited hosting websites available on Google and every website charge amount. Hosting is depends upon website speed and other factors. Few hosting websites charge very less amount due to this website speed effects. Users prefer those websites/blogs that open within 2-3 seconds. We will not buy hosting for our website because we will create Google Blogger and Google hosting is free of cost with Google Blogger. After creation of blogger we will redirect our blog to domain name. In the coming article, I’ll explain how to redirect blogger to register domain name.
8. Email Address
There is no need of email address that matches your domain like Robert@funnypic.com. This is useful for businessman, company and organizations like email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org. For blog creation you will require one email address. So register your email address by Gmail. Gmail is provided by Google. It’s free of cost. Gmail id’s like email@example.com. After choosing ‘No Thanks’ in email address option. Now click on ‘Continue with these options’.
9. Select Domain Registration Years
Now you will register domain years as per your need. Domain registration period is minimum 1 year and maximum 10 years. Large organizations and famous websites (e.g. school, MNC) renew domain for maximum period (mostly 10 years). For new website, you choose 1 year registration and before completing 1 year you will renew your domain for next year. If you go for 10 years then it will be cheap. But if you not continue your domain after 2-3 years your money wastes for other years.
10. Verify Amount & Proceed to Checkout
I’m selecting 1 year registration, so my total amount is $14 include all taxes. Total amount change according to registration years. After verify Total Amount, Click on “Proceed to Checkout”.
Don’t click on “Connect with Facebook”. Your personal information steal by other websites like address, name etc through facebook.
Now create your account on domain registration website. Click on “Create an account”.

Password has few conditions like 9 character password, one capital letter etc. These conditions mentioned below password box. On the fourth box, write support PIN. Through PIN your details registered on godaddy website. After filling all information, click on “Create Account”. Now, remember all details like email id, password, pin. Through all these details you will sign in to godaddy.
If you don’t create new email id and write your personal email id on goadday website during “create account”. Through this you will receive unlimited emails from many companies for creating website, hosting, sms, register domain and other types of paid services provided by companies. So, don’t use personal email id.
12. Billing Information
Now you fill your personal information on Billing Information form. Bill information is not secure. So, don’t fill correct information because this information is access by anyone through internet. Let, if you will fill correct phone number then you will receive calls, messages from companies for paid website creation.
