Customers are able to use the HostMySite store to order new domain registrations at any time. The below steps will work for registering a new domain for both new and existing HostMySite customers. If you a new customer, you will be prompted to create a new HostMySite account before placing your order.
Please note that your control panel user's contact information will be used for your domain's Whois contacts by default. The contact information can be changed at a later time by following the steps listed here.
- Enter the name you would like to register, then click Continue.
- Select the radio button next to the domain you want, select the term for the domain registraton from the drop-down menu (you can go up to 10 years total), then click Next again.
- If you would like Whois privacy on the domain, which protects your contact information from being publicly visible during a Whois lookup, keep the box checked for this service, then click Continue. This is checked by default. If you do not want to use Whois privacy, simply de-select the box and click Continue.
- If you only want to register this domain name and not tie it to any existing services, click the radio button for "I do not require any additional services". Then, click Continue.
- You will be taken to a confirmation page, where you can select the radio button indicating whether you are or are not already a customer.
- For Existing Customers: You will be prompted to enter your control panel login credentials. Once entered, you can select your payment method from the drop-down menu and then place the new domain order.
- For New Customers: You will then be prompted to enter your contact information and payment information for the order. You will also need to check the box to accept the HostMySite Terms of Service which are linked on the bottom of the page. Once this information is entered, click "Place Order" to complete the registration process. You will now be able to log in with the newly created account, and manage your domain name.
