Explanation of the Domain Name Registration

Registering a domain name is a fairly straightforward process. In fact the hardest part of registering a domain name is thinking of a name that has not yet been registered. There are some people who have never registered a domain name, given the task to a third party, or have always used free hosting. Here is a simple explanation of how to register a domain.

The first thing you have to do is think about the name itself, this, believe it or not, is the hardest part. As there have been so many domain names registered there are not many options for keywords that you can use in your domain name. There are two ways you can choose your name, use keywords, or think of your own word.

Whichever path you choose, you are going to need several ideas for a name so first write down many ideas on a piece of paper. Write a list of keywords that you can use in any combination or come up with a list of your own made up words. I chose NameSearchDomain for my site but only because most of the other word combinations that I wanted had already been registered. You can, of course, try to come up with your own word like Google, which is both catchy and memorable.

Once you have a list of possible names you will need to find out if they are available. To do this you will have to visit a domain name registry. I used Godaddy but would not recommend them to a new user as they offer too many extras that a newbie could spot during registration. I suggest you check forums such as DN forum for recommendations, visit various sites and see which one you are comfortable with. For dot com names I plan to pay around ten dollars.

Once you have found a domain name registry, you have to go through its list of names to see if they are available. To do this just type the name in the search box and select an extension, usually it is better to use .com due to its popularity. If a domain name you have chosen is available, then you will be given the opportunity to register it. All you need to do is follow the instructions on the screen and the new domain is yours.

Once you have registered a new name you will need to point it to your web space, assuming you are buying the name to create your own site. To do this you will need to provide some DNS information, which you can get from your website host. You should have two addresses, both probably starting with NS, probably NS1 and NS2, you have to add this information to your domain name registration account under “domain name servers”. Typically you will need two, a primary server and a secondary server. This will take time to transmit through the Internet servers, typically up to 72 hours. Once the DNS information has been transmitted, you can type your domain name into an internet browser and land on your website.

This is basically an overview of what you will need for domain name registration. It should provide you with a basis for registering your own domain. An important tip before registering your domain, all sales are final, this means that once you have purchased a domain name there are no refunds. One final tip, the longer you register a domain, the more discount you will receive. I would advise only registering for a minimum of one year in the beginning in case you don’t like it later on, you don’t want to have to carry around a useless domain name for 10 years.
