I love domains! This simple investment of $10 can earn you hundreds of dollars in a year – if you know what to do with it. So if you’re hesitating on buying your own domain then don’t hesitate further. As they say this is the real estate in the internet world and it’s a worthwhile investment.
So how do you buy your own domain? You can register your own domain at a domain registrar. Domain registrars are websites that sell domain names. Be careful though because there are a lot of fake domain registrars out there so it’s better to stick with reliable ones like GoDaddy, Namecheap, and Dynadot. I personally use Namecheap because unlike GoDaddy it doesn’t add unnecessary stuff in your shopping cart and it comes with a domain privacy free for one year.
The first step you need to do is register for an account at the domain registrar of your choice. You will then be asked to fill out some personal information. If you already have a domain name of your choice then proceed to the domain availability tool to check if that particular domain name is available for you to register. If it is already available then you have to be creative and come up with a short, easy to recall domain name. Once you’ve hit the jackpot then proceed to checkout. It’s better to stick with .com, .net, and .org extensions though. At the checkout you can pay with your credit card or Paypal.
