How To Register Your Business Domain Name

Table of Contents

In this tutorial, I’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 I use and trust myself.

Step 1 : Go to site

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

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

Click the image below to go and start searching for your domain on Namecheap (opens in a new window).

Take Note: You may type it in with the extension or leave out the extension. If you are looking for common extensions like .com, org,.net etc.Then you need not type it in. If your extension is specific, then type in the domain plus the extension. For instance instead of typing thenewdomainofmine , type it plus the extension you want to register, i.e thenewdomainofmine.co.uk .

Step 2: NameCheap will tell you if this domain is available or not

On the next screen, NameCheap will tell you if this domain is available or not; or what domain name suffixes are available.
This is the toughest part. If your top choice for a domain name is available, you’re in luck—snap it up while you can!

However, you may find that the domain you wanted isn’t available. NameCheap is going to provide some alternatives for you. If none of them will work for you, go back and try searching for your second choice and see if it’s available.

Step 3: Add to cart

Against the domain you want to buy, click on the Add to cart button.

Step 4 of buying a domain on Namecheap

Once you add the domain to cart the next step is to checkout.

To checkout, click on the checkout button at the bottom of the page.

On the right hand side of your browser you will see the Confirm order button. It will be at the bottom of the screen if you are on a mobile device.

Then click on confirm order to log in or sign up into your Namecheap account.

Step 5 : Create an account or Log into your account

You need to log into your account or sign up if you don’t have an account.

Step 6 : Choose a Payment method and finalize payment.

Once you log in or create your account, you need to choose a payment method.

You can pay via Card, Paypal or Account funds. Choose a payment method then click continue.

On the final checkout page, if you are paying via Paypal, Click on the Checkout with Paypal button. Confirm all your details and make payment.

That is how to buy a domain on namecheap.
