How Do I
Register My Domain Name?
It's never been easier to
get your site online!
There are thousands of companies out there will
register a domain name on your behalf. Some of the
larger ones you may have heard of are Godaddy,
Register.com and Network Solutions just to name a
few. Without going into the positives and negatives
of each company, it's important to be aware that you
have a choice.

name on your own, Charlottezweb recommends
Godaddy.com. Their pricing is very friendly due to
the number of domains they control and they have a
simple interface for managing your domain.
can also register domains for you if you would
prefer to have someone handle the technical side for
you. Many clients prefer to purchase both their
domain and hosting through one provider so that they
don't have to worry about the initial setup or
maintaining separate accounts and billing.
If you are comfortable with managing your own
domains, there is no reason why you can't register
your domains through the provider of your choice --
independent of who provides your hosting.
