Step-1: Registering A custom domain Name:
Domain name is the main thing for any website and it is called as URL or web address of the website.
Domain names are of different types they are mainly TLD’s, country level domains and specific domains. TLD means top level domains
Top level domains are mainly three types. These are universal domain names which are can be used throughout the world.
Types of Top level domains are
.com type – Mainly for brands and companies
.org type -Mainly for organizations
.net type – Mainly for technology blogs and etc.
Country level domains are specified to countries with specific country codes(extensions)
.in and .co.in are especially for India
.us is especially for united states
.co.uk and .uk are especially for united kingdom
.sa is especially for South Africa
like this, every country has their specific country level domain extensions.
Specific Domains are having the specific niche extensions like .club, .online, .news, .tech, .design, .video, .studio, .dance, .actor, .social, .reviews , .computer, .rocks, .pet, .cloud, .me, .lol, .forsale, .xyz, .ninja, .bio and .tv etc….
Domain availability checking needs some innovating thinking and generally, the domain names with direct keywords will may not available right now because of the competition. In the selection of domain name, it’s length should be short and name should be a cache one that needs to remember by the visitors.
Registering a domain is the first task for the beginners. I am providing a simple technique here to get a domain at 111 Indian rupees.
Registering a .COM domain for 111 Indian rupees
First, disable the Ad blocker if it is inactivated mode. Otherwise, don’t need to worry about this. If you don’t know about the Ad blocker you don’t worry just go on.
Then go to the Google.com or Google.co.in type GoDaddy then you will see Rs.99.COMs in the sub listings of GoDaddy and then click on Rs.99.COMs and then you will be redirected to godaddy.com
Then enter your required domain name in the search box if it is available then click on continue. and once again click on continue and then make 2 or 5 years as 1 year and don’t need to change any other options and click on proceed to checkout on the right side.And then go to new customer option here, use a new Gmail in the next required fields and go for suitable payment option to get the domain.
After that wait for 2 to 5 minutes , you will get the order confirmation and verification emails. Verify your domain ownership by clicking the verify button in the verification mail.
Step-2: Purchasing the hosting or Go for free hosting:
In order to set up the website live we definitely need the hosting provider (hosting server) In this case we can go for the premium hosting or we can go for free hosting services. Preferring premium hosting is better than free hosting because of the security and support issues.
Generally hosting is of three types
- Shared hosting or WordPress hosting
- VPS hosting
- Dedicated server
Generally, we will go for shared hosting Initially.
I am mentioning the best hosting service providers which are having good track record and good customer support.
- Digital ocean
- known host
- A small orange
If you are having any trouble or doubt about the purchasing hosting I will guide you to purchase the hosting for some discounts.
The detailed information about the is given in the following video.
Step-3: Changing the domain name servers:
Changing the domain name servers is a simple task. When you purchasing the hosting the service provider will provide the Domain name servers in the invoice message. changing the domain name servers is shown in the following steps.
First login into your domain provider account (ex: login into your GoDaddy or big rock account)
Then go to the Manage my domain option and click on the settings tab and change the domain name servers, That is clearly mentioned in the following images and video.
Step-4: Adding to add-on domains and installing the WordPress in the Cpanel
First login to your CPanel account which is provided by your hosting provider
then go to the domain block you will see an option there as add-on domains then click on it
then you will go to another page like this as mentioned below figure.
Enter your domain name here like example.com with no pre-formats ( Don’t add http:// or http://www. before example.com).
After Adding domain name in the Add-on domains we need to install the WordPress to the particular domain
