"There are no secrets to registering 
your own Domain Name."

Registering your domain is easyReally, it's not difficult. Just like our magician friend, you too can pull your own rabbit out of the hat. Just find the right web site (you've already done that), and the secrets are revealed. Now we're going to show you exactly how to do this trick.

If you need a web host for your new domain, be sure to consider one of the finest... NewbieClubHosting.com. (A click will open a new browser window so you won't lose this page.)

Choosing a domain name
You simply think up a domain name. Dot com, dot org, dot net, whatever. The "dot com" domain is the most widely recognized, and still the preferred domain of choice.

After you've decided on a domain name, you need to see if it's available for you to register. If a name has already been registered, you'll be told as much. You can check on a name here:

Registering a domain is $13.50 U.S. for a year's registration when you use our service.

  • Find a great domain name! Our DomainTwistTM combines your words with the most popular words used on the Internet.
    Give it a whirl!
  • Domain Transfers. You can try this if you want to, but we're not guaranteeing your current Registrar will release your domain. They're very picky about letting go of those high priced accounts! If your account isn't in paid status, or your fingers and toes aren't crossed just right while you hold your tongue in a certain position, the transfer may fail. But hey, it's worth a try... just click here and try it. You're going to secure site.

The DNS entry is like a street address
You need to know the DNS if you plan to use your domain name right away (DNS is the acronym for Domain Name Server). Every web host has a DNS and IP address, in primary and secondary flavors. 

Think of it as a street address. The DNS name is simply a specific address of a computer somewhere on planet earth. And the IP portion is just a number that represents the name you choose.

What does a DNS look like?
The DNS address looks like this:

Primary DNS: NS1.REGISTRARS.COM
Primary IP: 209.52.165.100

Secondary DNS: NS2.REGISTRARS.COM
Secondary IP: 209.52.165.101

The numbers are the IP address "number name" that corresponds to the real name part of the address. Just like your house has a number on a street, so a domain has a number that identifies the name.

The Primary DNS is the one that's used most often. The Secondary DNS is used if the primary is busy. It's like a safety net of sorts.

How to find out who owns any domain
You can find all the domain information you can stomach at onewhois.com. Addresses, phone numbers, etc. for the people who own the domain. Even their e-mail addresses. And especially the DNS info we're talking about here.

You don't need all of that info--it's just nice to know, especially when you're doing research, or maybe you're just curious.

Parking your domain is the easiest
Even if you don't know the DNS name or the IP numbers (the 209.52.165.100 part), you can "park" your domain with the company you register with
. Here's our recommendation:

 


 

Three steps to obtaining a domain
To register a domain, follow these 3 steps:

1. Select a name (use the form above to check out its availability, or use any other form you desire).

2. Find out what the Primary and Secondary DNS info is, as well as the Primary and Secondary IP address, for the host you want to use. (Not necessary if you're just "parking" a domain for later use.)

3. Fill out the forms supplied by the domain registrar.

That's it. There really isn't anything more to registering. It's like going off the school, registering, and once done with registration, you don't have to think about it again until the next set of classes comes up. Equate the next class group with renewing your domain if you choose.
