To buy domains for your business website, there are a few quick tips that can make the process easier for you. What is a domain? A domain name is the name of your website. For instance, ebay.com is the domain name for eBay. There are many places to buy domains on the web. You can purchase the domain for a single year or in terms of multiple years. To buy domain names for multiple years is generally the wisest solution. I've had the sad experience of holding a domain for years, and then missing the e-mail notification of it's expiration ... and a few weeks later someone else bought my domain for 5 years!!
Domain registration is relatively inexpensive, with prices at under $10 per year. The fist step to buy a domain is searching for a name. Here are some tips on choosing a domain name for your site:
Once you find an available domain name that you like, it’s time to buy a domain. You can enter a public or private registration. Public registrations will be visible in the whois.com directory. The whois directory allows people to type in a website and view the owner’s personal identity. If you do not want your personal information shown, choose private registration (this will cost a little bit extra).
After you have selected the term of your registration (such as 1, 2 or more years) and decided if you want public or private registration, you only need to enter your billing info and complete your purchase. I hope these tips on how to buy domains can be of assistance to you in building your business! You can find more information on domain names with this article by one of our esteemed contributors.
