Since the domain name should legally be in your name, we do not register domain names on behalf of our partners. We usually recommend that you register the domain through a registrar like GoDaddy or NameCheap, which will cost around $13 annually. However, you may use any domain registrar that you like.
When you register your domain name, do not select any other products (like hosting or e-mail accounts). If you plan to keep your site long term, you may want to register the domain for multiple years at a discount. If you only register your domain for one year, you will need to renew it annually.
Tip: We highly recommend that you set your domain on: 1) registrar lock: this keeps people from trying to transfer your domain to their registrar; and 2) auto renewal: this will ensure that your domain name doesn't expire due to non-payment. You can set both of these settings at your registrar.
Once you are ready to launch your website, please read our article titled "How do I launch my website?". We typically need a few days notice for this. If you have any further questions, please feel free to call our Support team at 1-800-409-6631 x2 or send us a message through the Help Center tab in the CMS.
