How to Register a Domain?

It is simple to register a domain name for a website. All you need to do is to contact your local registrar, pay the fees and secure the domain in your name. That said, you may face some problems while actually going through the process. It often happens that people are not aware of the right way of registering a domain and end up with problems.

Where to Start?

The first thing you need to do is to find an ideal domain name for your website. You can do that by looking at the type of your business. If you want to run a computer or networking related website then “.net” will be an ideal top-level domain. If you are not sure about the right top domain then “co.uk” will be the best option. It is the most commonly used top domain in the United Kingdom.

Once deciding the top domain, you can focus on other aspects such as the sub domain. It is the actual name of the website such as “flowers” in the flowers.co.uk domain. Choose a domain that is either the name of your business or corresponds to your business ideology.

Domain Registration

There are dozens of domain registrars in the United Kingdom. They will register your domain for a specific period of time for your website. You can register your domain for an indefinite period of time and this will become your permanent web identity. You can also rent a domain for a month or a year. Under this scenario, you will not be able to use the domain as your personal property.

Many web hosting companies also offer domain registration. They are qualified to do that and have fulfilled the necessary documentation. You will find it easier to register a domain with such companies as they will also guide you on selecting a domain name and offering economical hosting plans for your website.
