Making Cash On The Web is a serious attempt to compile useful information about making money on the internet. It is a combination of things that I have learned myself, as well as information culled from other sources. It is NOT about get rich quick schemes, or wierd marketing programs. I am not going to sell you anything.
Once you have found an appropriate and available domain name, you need to register it with a domain registrar. These are companies that have been officially licensed to handle this sort of work.
There currently are hundreds of such companies on the net. A few good ones are:
Prices on these things change constantly. It’s a low-margin business, and, I suspect, a loss-leader for some companies. At many of these, after you sign up for the domain name, you are bombarded with offers for other services: search engine submissions, extra email accounts, site statistics tracking and more. This is where they make their money. Ignore them all. You don’t need to pay for these things.
Before you settle on a registrar, though, there’s another thing to consider: It’s a lot easier if you register your domain at the same place where you decide to host your site. Any of those listed above also are a good choice for a web host.
But don’t make a decision yet. Go On To Web Hosting.
