Choosing a domain extension
As you can note above, the domain name is not complete without the extension part. A domain extension is a part after the dot on the right side. Some of the common extensions are .com, .org, .gov, .net, .xyz, .co.us, .uk, and .ca among others. After selecting your domain name, the registrar will display the available domain extensions options. Each of the options has a different pricing.
For instance, you may find that bestwriter.com is expensive compared to bestwriter.net. Also, there is a possibility that bestwriter.com is already taken. Hence, the registrar will provide you with other available options.
Select the domain name you want to buy
After choosing your domain name as stated above, the registrar offers you different options of the available domain names with various extensions and prices. At this point, you need to make a decision on the domain name that you feel is the best for your business and within your budget. Notably, just like how you pay rent for your business premises, your domain name comes with renewal charges.
As such, you can select the number of years you would like to pay and use the available payment processing options to purchase your domain name. Also, you can add other services such as web hosting, security, web designing among others and pay for the entire package.
Make the payment
After going through the above steps, the last one is making the payment for your domain name. Most domain registrars accept popular payment processing options such as debit cards, PayPal, and direct bank transfers among others. As such, you can use any of these options to pay for your domain name.
Finally, you are now the owner of that domain name and any person across the globe can reach you through it.
