How can I buy domain for website host from my computer?
Answer by Kum Eric Tso
Great question! I believe many people read this question with WHERE, instaed of HOW and so they tend to advertise their services as an answer to your question.
For the short answer to your question I’ll say:
- You need to connect your computer to the internet.
- You need to have a domain name in mind. e.g voiceofdominion.com
- You need to visit your chosen domain registrar’s site. (In case you haven’t chosen, I will show you how below)
- Once you are on the site, check if your chosen domain name is still available by typing it in.
- Next, look up for the different price offers for the different options (.com, .net, .org etc) and make a purchase.
That’s it, you got a domain of your own.
NB: You don’t need a special registrar even if you want to open a web hosting company. Unless you wish to have a reseller account which you should sort out with your hosting platform.
