10 Easy Steps to Purchase a Domain Name

January 27, 2023

  1. Decide on a domain name: This is the name that people will type in their web browser to find your website. It’s important to choose a name that is easy to remember and spell, and that accurately represents your brand. For example, if your business is called “John’s Bakery,” a great domain name would be “JohnsBakery.com.au”
  2. Check availability: Before you can purchase a domain name, you need to make sure it’s available. Visit a domain registrar’s website, such as GoDaddy or Namecheap, and use their domain name search tool to check if your desired domain name is available with .au extension.
  3. Choose a registrar: A registrar is a company that manages the registration of domain names. Some popular options include GoDaddy, Namecheap, and HostGator.
  4. Select a plan: Most registrars offer different plans for purchasing a domain name. For example, you can purchase a domain name for one year, two years, or even longer. Choose the plan that best fits your needs.
  5. Provide contact information: You’ll need to provide your contact information, such as your name, address, and email address, when purchasing a domain name. This information is required by auDA, the organization that manages the registration of .au domain names.
  6. Choose privacy protection : Some registrars offer privacy protection service to hide your personal information from public, this is optional and depend on your preferences.
  7. Enter payment details: You’ll need to provide your payment information, such as your credit card number, to purchase a domain name.
  8. Review and agree to terms of service: Before completing your purchase, you’ll need to review and agree to the registrar’s terms of service. Make sure to read through these terms carefully to ensure that you understand your rights and responsibilities as a domain name owner.
  9. Configure DNS: Once your registration is complete, you’ll need to configure the DNS (Domain Name System) for your domain. This will allow your domain name to point to your website. You can do this by logging into your registrar’s account and updating the DNS settings.
  10. Verify ownership: Some registrars may require you to verify your ownership of the domain by email or through a DNS update.

Congratulations! You now own a domain name and are one step closer to creating your own website. Remember to renew your domain registration every year to keep your domain name active.
