Simple Steps For Domain Registration

To set up a website for your business, you will want to register domain name for that website (URL), domain name registration is not a very big task. Often, it is a good idea for your business website name to be the same as your company name, but this is not important, your domain name can be an abbreviation of your company name or a different name altogether, like a description of your products or services combined with your company location etc.

1) Choose a Domain Name:

Initially, you want to find out if your register domain name of your choice is available or not, you can do this by using a domain name registrar like HostingRaja and use their domain name register search box. A .com extension is preferable and widely used, but you can use a different domain extension if .com is not available, such as, .net, .info or .biz and you can also include dashes and numbers in your domain name if you are having difficulty finding website URL availability.

2) Register Domain Name:

Some web hosting provider include domain registration free of charge for trial period, so that you do not need to pay for it separately and also some domain registrar provide web hosting, so that when you register your domain name, it will automatically direct to your website. You have one more option to register your domain name with one company and get web hosting from another company, for example, if you have a blog with a free service like Word Press, you can purchase a domain name and point it or redirect it to your blog website address and no need to purchase additional hosting.

3) Redirect Your Domain Name to Your Website:

When you domain name is ready to use, you have a couple of options, if you want to forward the domain name to one page, you can redirect your domain name to a specific web address. Website hosting company that you are using will provide you the name servers and instructions on setup, when you update your host's name servers, allow 24 to 48 hours for other networks to access the information and for your website to properly appear on the Internet. Do keep in mind that you will need to renew your domain annually, also your domain name registration India will remind you through call or email before renewal date.
