Step 1: Use a trustworthy domain registrar
We personally use Name Cheap to register our domains, and domains for our clients, as they have amazing prices and offer free domain privacy which helps prevent the number of spam emails you receive.
Step 2: Check your URL domain is available
Most domain registrars will have an easy-to-use search box on their home page which will allow you to type in your desired URL domain name and then check its availability. You may want to purchase country-specific suffixes known as “top-level domains” (TLDs) such as .co.uk for the United Kingdom, or .fr for France for example.
Of course, the most common and internationally recognized TLD is .com, however, you might struggle to find the exact domain name you’re looking for with a .com TLD, so you may have to try some other variations, or maybe choose another TLD like .net, .org, or .co for example.
Step 3: Register your URL domain
Once you have found your desired URL domain name which is available for purchase, the last and final step is to choose the length of time you would like to register the domain name for, then complete the checkout process. The checkout process will vary slightly depending on which registrar you use, however, there should be a simple steps system to help you checkout easily.
