> Step 2 – Find a Domain availability Checker tool

The journey of buying a domain name starts with an availability lookup. In fact, many providers have the tool to check domain vacancies.

> Step 3 – Run a domain name search

Now enter your desired name in the search field and take it for a spin. The domain checker tool will present you with a list of available options that you can register. Use the Domain extension filter to search for the exact extension that you’re interested in.

> Step 4 – Pick the best available option

Once you locate a name that you like, proceed with the registration by pressing Add to Cart. If you’re not planning to look for more variations, proceed with the checkout and you’ll be able to choose a payment processor and complete your transaction.

> Step 5 – Finalize your order and complete the domain registration

As soon as you complete the domain payment, you’ll be redirected to the control panel. Inside, you’ll find the setup box to complete your domain name registration or some platforms complete the form filling first and then payment is done at last. Make sure to fill in all the fields with the correct details, as they will be stored in the official domain ownership database called WHOIS. After you submit your details, the domain registration will be processed and you’ll only need to follow one last step.

> Step 6 – Verify the ownership of your new domain

    The final step of your journey is to verify the domain ownership through the email address you used while registering. It usually arrives within a few minutes after finishing the domain setup. In the case it doesn’t arrive, you can resend the request from your control panel. We recommend doing it immediately, as waiting for 15 days or more will lead to a temporary suspension from the registry.

So, now you know how to buy a domain name and complete the initial registration process. The next step is to create an eCommerce website. Learn from our article here How to go about it.
