Domain name registration:

How to register

In order to make a domain name you must register first. According to ICANN WHOIS, the registrar will check if the domain name you request is available and create a WHOIS record with the registrants information. However, to register and keep your domain name you must pay the requested amount yearly.

How I registered

I registered on WordPress for free as I chose a free account which gives you the basic package. It is also free as my URL has ‘wordpress.com’ and in order to get rid of it I would be required to pay a certain amount to do so. The process is very quick and simple and doesn’t require a lot of information to register.

Hosting:

What is a host?

A web hosting is a service that provides organizations, businesses and individuals with the space to publish content and be viewed by others on the internet. For example, my web host is WordPress as it allows me to publish content onto a website and blog that can be viewed by others who search for it.

Here are other web hosts:

  1. Register.com
  2. OnlyDomains.com
  3. eNom.com
