Selecting a Domain name is an advantage. Domain name (URL) or Web address is a unique thing. That would be the address of your website. Choosing a domain name is not such an easy thing so do not hurry. You have to consider some critical issue. As like as…
- Include your primary keywords in your Domain Name.
- Domain Name should be related to your topics.
- Your Domain Name’s sound should be smooth that people can pronounce easily.
- Moreover, the name should be meaningful.
It is a little bit tricky to match your domain name with your primary keyword, so you have to add something with your keyword. You could use some tools to search out possible domain name or URL in your keywords by use www.namemesh.com or www.domainsbot.com. Those tools not only search available name also suggest you bulk domain name. Though single one is sufficient, I have shared two tools. You can use any one of them or both to select your website address. Just go to the site and type your keyword in the search box and search. Within few moment you will get all the available URL in your keyword. Now just select one of the themes but do not forget to consider your issue.
Now you have to buy your domain name or URL from domain provider. Yes, we must buy our domain and host from directly hosting provider. Of course, we consider most reputed one for battery output. However here you are not going to buy a Domain name. You just select your domain name in this step. After selecting your Domain URL, we jump to next step that is the most important matter over the guide. It is WebHosting.
There are huge hosting companies available in the market. You can buy your hosting from any reputed company like GoDaddy, Bluehost or Hostgator. However, I will recommend you to use IPage web hosting that I am using for this website. IPage has an offer for a new customer. Where you will get an Unlimited Shared Hosting package for only $1.99 monthly cost, not only that you will get a free domain for one year also. If you want, then you can grab the hosting offer for three years. However, this offer is available for an only first transaction you made. So if you can, then buy for three years. Moreover, after this time you have to pay regular prize that is Regularly $11.95/mo and domain cost will be 15$ per years.
If you want to parses your hosting in IPage then use This IPage hosting Link and follow the step. It is simple process first step select your Free Domain name then give your information then select your plan and chek out the payment using your MasterCard or PayPal.
Note:: If you have no Master Card or Credit Cart then you can get your Marter Card or Credit Card from www.neteller.com. You can use this cart for online shopping or receive online payment.
After completing the billing proses, IPage gives you a user Panel. From this user panel, you can control your Domain and Hosting. (Remember If you buy your hosting from elsewhere like Godaddy or Bluehost then I could not help you because I have no idea about their control panel or User Pannel OR-Dashboard. That is why I did not use any hosting service of them without IPage.) your control Pannel would look like this.
Now scroll down the page, in the Right sidebar, you will find a System Settings widgets. Here you will get your hosting information like your Website IP, Your Nameservers, Path to FTP, Webmail URL, Control Panel URL and more. Also, you would be able to view the scale of your use of Disk Space and Bandwidth as a percentage.
To host your website, first you have to setup up your Name server(hosting) to your Domain, and you can do this from DomainCentral. To go to your DomainCentral panel click on “Edit Domains” option from Shortcuts widgets of the Right sidebar. Rather you can use “DomainCentral” option from your Control Panel to get your domain setting. Here you will get your domain as a list item. Now click on your domain name, and you would get the feature of your domain configuration.
Right now you are on “Overview” tab, now click on NameSarver Tab to update your name server and select “Use default name servers “ option then click on “Save” to save your update. (although it is a default setting of NameSarver, I just do it to introduce you with nameserver.) Get back to control panel.
