Hello guys, my name is Bipul. Through this step-by-step blog, I am going to show you how to buy a domain name from GoDaddy.
Search For GoDaddy on Google
Let’s start with searching ‘“GoDaddy” on Google you should see the below search results.
Now you can click on any of the Ad or organic search links above and you will see the website of GoDaddy has opened.
Search For Domain Name
Here you can search for the domain name you are looking for. A domain name is a kind of digital identity just like your name is. It is a name for your online business, website or blog. You have to register this name. For example, my website is smartshoppingindia.in.
Let me show you how to search for a domain with this name and purchase it. So let me type in the search field here “smartshoppingindia”.
The .com domain for smartshoppingindia is available for an introductory price of Rs 199 for the first year when you go for a 2-year registration.
The Best Domains For Publishers
Besides the .com domain, the .net, .org and .info domains are also available for registration. Don’t go for .xyz domains as these do not go well with advertising networks like Google AdSense. Always go for domains like .com. .net, .in, .org, .info etc.
Always keep your domain name simple. Keep a name that will click on one’s mind or get memorized quickly.
So I have chosen smartshoppingindia.com and here I will click add to cart.
After clicking ‘add to cart’ the above page will come.
And the other things are also push-selling types like domain privacy. What is Domain Privacy? Let me tell you. Privacy is that whenever you purchase a domain name you have to give your details, your name, address, phone number etc. All these things which are visible to the public, this domain name is registered to whom. If you want that none of your information is visible to the public, then you can use a privacy lock on it Domain Privacy protection” that will cost you rupees 299 per year. You don’t have to take this one. Just check “No Thanks” here.
Click on “Continue to cart”. After clicking on “Continued to cart”, see, it is showing these things Here it added for two years, but I want it for one year only and they have also added professional emails. But I don’t need this as well. I will tell you about this later – What are professional emails? I will tell you about it in another blog post. So I will remove it from here.
It is advisable that you opt for a 2-year domain registration as it is cheaper that way.
