Low cost domain name registration

Registration of a unique top level domain is an absolute necessity if you want potential customers to take your company website or blog seriously, and you can select and register a domain name both easily and affordably. The following article explains how.

Step one, is to choose an appropriate domain name. The best choice for a domain name will be a name that is both short and memorable, but one that identifies you. Single word domain names that are short and memorable may not always be available, however, so it helps to have several alternative names in mind. For example, let’s say you have a blog or web site called “Digital Cameras Review”. A few short and memorable domain names you might come up with could be “camrev.com”, “digirev.com”, or “dcreview.com”. When you type these names into the domain name registration search utility, however, you will find that all of these .com’s are presently registered.

Thankfully, by using the domain name registration search utility program, you are given a list of alternate top level domains to select from that might be even catchyer. Let’s look at the other options given for “dcreview.com”: For a company website, you might choose “thedcreview.com”, “newdcreview.com”, or “dcreviewstore.com”; if you have a blog, a couple of good alternatives might be “bestdcreview.com”, or “mydcreview.com”. Of course, if you select any of these alternatives, you will not have a short, two-word domain name for a .com name, and generally it is considered best practice to have a domain name consisting of no more than two words.

So what other choices do you have? You can choose to have something different than a .com name and still have your memorable “dcreview” domain. Look again at the domain name registration search page, and when you type in “dcreview”, you will see that “dcreview.org” and others (.ca, .net, .mx, .bz) are all available. Any of these will be fine if you do not intend to sell your domain name. If you do intend to sell your domain name in the future, you should select a .com name.

Now that you have selected a domain name, you will need to register it so you can use it. After you have chosen your name on the domain name registration page, simply click the “Add” button, and then the “Continue to Registration” button. This will take you to the registration page, where you will register your account and then proceed to checkout. Currently, the price for a .com name is a very low-priced $9.99/yr. After completing checkout you will be able to manage your domain name and use it however you like, according to the company’s guidelines.
