Choosing a domain name is similar to choosing a company name — it needs to be a lot of thought and consideration. Your desired domain name is your identity on the web; you have to make sure you choose a name that not only fits your business but is also easy to find and promote.

How to choose a domain name, How to buy a domain name
Choosing a domain name is not typical work for anyone who deals with the internet. Choosing a domain name requires a lot of thought and consideration. You all know that this is an identity of your entity, which shows all over the world. Every business needs to have a website, and they need a domain for it.
Things to remember first for registering a domain:
- The domain name you which you want to make your website name should be a short name, this name should be easy to remember and easy to read.
- You have to clear about Domain properties like sub-domain and top-level-domain.
- Top-Level-Domain is like an extension of your domain name wiz. .in, .com, .biz etc. This is also based on country-specific for search engines.
- The Domain name can be 2 or 3 words but it should make sense and needs to have a proper meaning in itself.
- Choose a good domain service provider always, I recommend Godaddy to you.
- Most of the time the name which you choose for your domain doesn’t available for taking for you. Then service provider suggests you the similar name for your domain.
(also your domain name needs to relate to your entity, it should be meaningful. Top Level Domain is also based on country-specific for search engines. You can read it on Why this domain is mater to choose a domain. You can read it on Why domain type is mater to choose a domain. You can choose it by your own choice by exploring the facilities and prices also. I will recommend you to choose it wisely, don’t think so that the suggested name needs to take on that time.)
Steps for registering a domain name:
Step 1: First go to your service provider website, I am sharing the steps about Godaddy, in terms of the domain service provider this is the best website for domain purchase. (I have found that there is a myth on most the person minds that server and domain service should be taken from one service provider. It can be possible that we can purchase different domain and server from desired websites)
Step 2: Search here your domain name which you have chosen for your website. If it is available with your upper-level-domain and right domain which you want the click on add to cart option.
If the name which you want to take as a domain is not available and also taken by any other person, then you have to find any other name, or you can go with the suggested name if you find a good one.
If that domain is shown with premium domain and its price in lacks, then you have to left that domain yet and go with the different domain name. Another thing you can do that if you want to take your domain for India only then, you can go with a .in upper-level domain.
Step 3: If you don’t have any ID on Godaddy then first you have to make an account in Godaddy.
Uncheck all the additional services, you can take an SSL certificate yet, but I recommend you to not purchase it on beginner level because it is a little bit costly.
Step 4: Finally checkout for this domain name and make payment for it.
Note: I want to just start on this field I want to suggest you that you should purchase a domain and server for less amount because this is a good method that you start it by investing less.
For starting with less investment, it can be possible with this method:
I. Go to your browser and search “99 web hosting Godaddy”
II. Go to the first link shown on google then search your domain name here.
III. You will get a free domain and a web hosting for 1 year with very less amount.
IV. After that, the steps are the same as it is prescribed in this article.
I personally recommend some tips for you to purchase a domain name registration.
Whenever we are going to do something there are some criteria’s for learning that thing. Suppose you are in school and studied in class 12th then this is necessary that you have to take classes for understanding the concepts first they want to study and study. But in terms of web designing, this is not enough that you took lessons and then you became a master on it. Web-related skills are built through practice only and it depends on how you can explore.
Because we cannot say that he/she is a master in web designing, because web-related skills have infinite possibilities, I thought that they have no end. So rather than focusing on lessons or reading, we have to do practice and also we have to explore it.
Tip: You can check for the domain name which is not available for purchase in the whois database for know about the domain details. Whois is the perfect domain extension to know about the domain history.
