Search, Buy, Register, a Domain Name

If your are just starting out you will need to search for and register a domain name before you can do business on the Internet. This is also the first step to be taken before a web site can be built for you so do this first.

The following steps will take you through the process of searching for the Domain Name you want to use and then how to buy and register it so it becomes your Domain Name.

The Registrar we recommend for this purpose is Network Solutions (NS) NS was the original registrar of internet domain names since the beginning of the Net and we highly recommend them. They are highly reliable and have a solid reputation in the industry.


Step 1 Click Here to access the Network Solutions web site to search and buy a domain name.

This screen will pop up. In the WHITE area type the domain name you would like to use for your site. Enter the name first then .com Don't forget the period before com.

After typing the name click the green button that shows "Search". You will have the opportunity of conducting more searches for another name later.

Search for a domain name

If the domain name you searched for is available you will see a .com box with a check mark. This means that a .com name is available for purchase and registration. You really want a .com domain name as this is the preferred choice of all online businesses.

Step 2 If the name you want is available click the green button that says "Add Domain to Order". If it is not available you can type more names below this area and search again.
