Every business needs a website, right? This is your way of establishing an online presence for yourself and/or your business. One of the very first steps is registering a domain name. A domain name is an address where your website can be found on the internet. TheBusinessPantry.com is our domain name. It directs people straight to our website. You can’t buy just any domain, of course—only one that isn’t already registered by another person or business. Also, choose something short and catchy, to make it easier for people to remember you.

List of Domain Name Registrars

There are numerous domain name registrars in the market. We narrowed it down to our top four favorites. Note that the prices wildly fluctuate throughout the year, every year, so it’s impossible to mention exact prices. Please check their sites for the latest rates. In no specific order:

GoDaddy – is the World’s #1 Domain Name Registrar, known for their brand, affordable pricing, and mind-share in the website industry. They make it super easy for us to choose a domain name, sign up for hosting, and start building online businesses. If your business starts to grow (which we hope!), they make it seamless as possible to upgrade your package. They offer 24/7 support and server monitoring and an emphasis on anti-hacking measures.

Bluehost – is one of the oldest and most reputable shared hosting companies on the Internet. It’s the best option if you’re looking to start a simple website/blog. They’re super cheap and easy to get started. Their 24/7 customer support is among the best of the best. Their known to be reliable and customer friendly hosting service.

HostGator – has a few noble qualities, including a longer-than-average money back guarantee and an easy-to-use interface for beginners. Their known to be affordable in price, hassle free, great uptime, and have superb 24/7 support staff. HostGator assists customers ranging from individual freelancers to Fortune 500 companies in more than 200 countries. They’re also constantly working to improve and refine their service and support.

Namecheap – is astonishingly cheap! They provide email, website builder, SSLs, and various services with 24/7 support and a 30-day money back guarantee. Did we mention that they’re cheap? Namecheap’s primary advantage is their pricing. Their known to have a strong commitment to supporting, but not bombard their customers marketing messages. We HATE those.

 

Lastly

Don’t forget renewing! You will need to renew your domain name in a year, two years, or longer. It’s crucial you remember to do so – otherwise, your domain name will go offline. If you wait too long, the domain name will go back up for sale and somebody else can buy it – not good for you!
