Purchasing Your Domain Name The first thing you need in order to have a website is have a domain name. A domain name is what you type in to a browser window to visit a site, such as http://www.mysite.com. A domain name is how anyone from anywhere in the world can access your site.If you’ve already registered your domain name, then you’re good to go for the next step—hosting. If you haven’t registered a domain name, the easiest way is to do it as you sign up for hosting. But you can also purchase (register) your domain name before you are ready to sign up for a hosting account. Note: if you are registering your domain name at GoDaddy, don’t sign up for anything except the domain registration –ignore the hosting offers, etc. that they’ll show you. What if you’re not sure what domain name you want? You can’t choose between two or three you really like? A good rule of thumb is to register all of them. It’s not that expensive and it gives you some time to decide. You can begin setting your site up on one domain, and if you change your mind, it’s easy to migrate your site to a different domain using BackupBuddy.You’ll want to have solidified your decision before you start promoting your site, but don’t let picking a domain name be a barrier to getting started.
