Step 1: Register Your Website’s Domain Name
A domain name is the name and address of your website. Such as www.YourBusiness.com. To check whether your business name is available, enter it into the online domain search tools. If your name is available, you are taken straight to the registration page. If you’re notified the domain isn’t available, adjust the name to find the desired.
If the .com version of your business name is available, consider using it for your website over other common extensions like .net or .org. It’s best to use a .com extension. People tend to search for and prefer a .com business site first when they looking for information or products online.
