How To Get Cheap Domain Name Registration

Introduction

Domain Registration is generally an expensive process and most often you are given options to register your domain for anywhere from 1 year to 10 years. In some instances maybe even longer, however 1 to 10 years is generally what is offered. Let’s look at some places that cheap domain registration can be found.

Step 1

There are several places that offer domain names and registration. It is best to do some shopping online so you can get the best price available for domain name registration. Before purchasing the domain name registration it is always best to consider how long you intend to keep your domain. Is this a domain for a business you intend to keep on a long term basis or will you just need the domain for a short period of time. After considering these things it’s time to look around online and find the best deal available.

Step 2

The first website that comes to mind for domain name registration is: http://www.cheap-domainregistration.com.

At this time they are offering domain name registration for 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 5 years and even 10 years. The price you pay depends upon the length of time you want to register your domain as well as whether or not your website is:

.com

.net

.biz

.co

.org

Those are just some of the examples of URL endings. Pricing on that site ranges from $9.99 to $89.99.

Another place which is very popular is www.godaddy.com.  That is probably one of the most popular places to find what you need for your website. Prices on domain registration there range from $9.99 to $99.99. Each website offers useful pricing charts so you can decide what’s right for you.

Step 3

You will find that some names are already taken so that’s when you need to put your creativity to work and find the right name for your domain. You may find that to be a challenging process, but with time and your inventive efforts, you will be able to find a name that suits the purpose.

I would suggest registering your domain for as long as you can so you don’t end up losing the name. If you decide not to register for long term, make absolutely sure you aren’t late completing your renewal because you do not want to lose your name to someone else.

Step 4

Use www.google.com when shopping around as you may find some cheaper pricing somewhere on the internet. It’s always best to do your homework before making a commitment.

Step 5

Now that you have located several resources where you can complete your domain name registration it’s time to make a decision and narrow things down some. Consider several things such as who offers the best pricing and the most features. Is it best to go with registering long term or short term? This all depends on the purpose you had in mind when you purchased your domain name and what you intend to do with your website and for how long.

Once you decide how long you want to register your domain for and who you want to register through, you can make your purchases on either of those websites mentioned by using their convenient online product selection and checkout processes. Most sites will offer the convenience of paying with your credit or debit card at the time you make your purchase.

Considerations and Other Important Information

It’s always best to make a decision based on what’s best for you.

If you want to get the traffic you expect from search engines, keywords are extremely important when considering a name and content for your website.

You can opt for private registration if you wish.

Some companies offer free domain registration with the purchase of web hosting service.
