How to Buy a Domain Name Transcript:
Okay so in this video I’m going to show you where you can buy your web address or domain name. Alright, let’s get started!
GoDaddy is an awesome website to really research your domain name and to purchase it. In order to get started you’re going to go to GoDaddy or you can use my affiliate link (marketingaccesspass.com/Godaddy) that’s below this video and we’re going to basically search for a domain name. So in
this case I have already searched or I want to select marketing access pass. And I’m going to recreate Marketing Access Pass for you and we’re going to walk through it together. Marketing Access Pass is already taken obviously and I’m going to buy a different domain which is going to be Marketingaccesspass.info. Basically, I’m going to go ahead and add it to my cart. Typically if you’re buying a domain name I’d highly recommend that you try to get a dot com name versus a dot co or dot
org. It’s just more common for people to use those dot com domains. You would hate for them to try to go to your website only to land on somebody else’s because they have the dot com. Since in this case I’m just going to be testing this we’re going to go ahead and click continue. And now when you get here Godaddy is going to ask you if you want to purchase some additional things. They’re going to ask you if you want privacy protection or a hosting account. In this case I’m going to suggest that you don’t purchase the hosting because I’m going to show you a different provider.
And I do recommend you get privacy protection because it hides your personal information, like your email address, your actual home address and all that good stuff. For $7.99 it’s really a no brainer. Then you’re going to go to “Continue to Cart”. Alright so, they’re going to try to ask if you already have some domains if you want to pay for their newly subscription. In this case I’m going to say “no thanks”. Alright, so now you get to this cart page and basically when they originally set this all up they’re going to set it up as a five year purchase. Now the reason why they recommend a five year purchase is search engines like Google. They rank you
higher when your domain name is purchased for more than five years because it’s telling Google that you’re in a serious business and you’re in it for the long term and you’re not just going to be a one year website and go down. But if you’re on a budget you can always start off with one year. In this case I’m just going to start off with a one year plan as an example. Basically you would go to “Proceed to Checkout” and click the orange button. Next they’re going to ask you to fill out your payment information. I already have a credit card on file so I”ll see you guys on the next page. Once you fill all that out you’re just going to place your order. Alright! So you’re all good. They gave you the order details and it’s going to be sent to your email address once that’s all done. Alright guys! So that’s how you buy a domain name on GoDaddy. I’ll see you guys in the next video! 🙂
