How to register your business domain name

In this tutorial, we’ll walk you step-by-step through the process of registering a domain name for your business. To do this, we’ll use Namecheap, the domain name registrar we use and trust ourselves.

Step 1: Go to the site

Visit namecheap.com. On the homepage, there is a domain search bar.

Type in the domain you’d like to register and press search.

Tip: Before searching for a domain name, consider what makes a good domain name for your vacation rental business. It should be easy to remember, relevant to your business, and preferably short. Avoid using hyphens and numbers.


Step 2: Check domain availability

On the next screen, Namecheap will display the availability of your chosen domain and suggest alternative domain name suffixes if needed.

This step can be challenging. If your preferred domain name is available, grab it while you can!

But if your desired domain isn’t available, review Namecheap’s suggested alternatives. If none of these options work for you, try searching for your second-choice domain name.

Step 3: Add to cart

Once you find an available domain, click the “Add to cart” button beside it.

Step 4: Checkout

After adding the domain to your cart, proceed to checkout by clicking the “Checkout” button at the bottom of the page.

On the right-hand side of your browser, you’ll find the “Confirm order” button, or at the bottom of the screen on mobile devices.

Click “Confirm order” to log in or sign up for your Namecheap account.

Step 5 : Create an account or log in

Log in to your existing Namecheap account, or sign up for a new one.

Step 6: Choose a payment method and finalize payment

After logging in or creating an account, select a payment method. Namecheap accepts card, PayPal, or account funds.

Choose a payment method, click “Continue“, and complete the payment process.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully registered a domain name with Namecheap.

Now that your domain is registered, you’re ready to build your vacation rental business’s online presence.
