Buy Your Domain Name Now
We recommend GoDaddy for domain name registration. Their rates are excellent, the admin panel intuitive, and they allow full DNS access. Please note that we DO NOT recommend GoDaddy for hosting or any other services based upon problems we've had in the past. So when you buy your doamin name, just say "no, thanks" to everything thing else they offer. And when they call, which they will to attempt to sell you more services, just say, "No, thanks."
- When selecting a domain name, avoid dashes/hyphens and underscore characters.
- Try how it feels to tell someone your domain name over the phone. Is it easy to understand? For instance, try saying the following:
MYBUSINESSWEBSITE.COM = "My business website dot com" is easy to understand.
MY-BUSINESS-WEBSITE.COM = "My dash business dash website dot com" could be misinterpreted easily.
- Select a user and password that you will provide to us for web administration and development. Do not use the same user and password you use for email and/or banking.
