In this lesson we will show you how to register and administer a domain name with Godaddy.com.
The concepts explored here are applicable to any registrar you decide to use.
First, we need to check if your desired domain name is available. To do so, type the domain name into the search bar.
If your domain name is available, you will see this message displayed on the screen.
If it is not available, you will need to search for another domain.
Certain domain names might be available, but at a premium price, because of their popularity.
For example: webdevelopmentcourse.com is available, but the price is much more expensive ($1600.00) because it is a premium domain.
Make sure the domain you have found is available at the standard rate of $9.99 US per year.
You have the option of also registering the same domain name with different extensions, if you need to, down below.
For now we will register just the single domain.
Click the Select button to add the domain name product to your shopping cart.
Now click the "Continue to Cart" button to proceed to check out.
