3) Choose a domain name: Always choose a domain name that is relevant to your brand or product and is easy to remember and spell. Consider choosing a domain name with a popular domain extension like ‘.com’, ‘.net’, or ‘.org’. That’s because they are more widely recognized and trusted by users.

4) Register your domain: Once you have chosen a domain name, follow the registrar’s instructions to complete the registration process. This typically involves providing your contact information, choosing a registration period (usually 1-10 years), and paying the registration fee. You can configure domain name system settings to determine where your website is hosted and how your users can access your website.
