How to Register a Domain Name

It is fast and easy to register any domain name, including a .com, .net, and .org! With Host Capitol, you can even get a free domain name with your hosting account upon registration using promo code FREEDOMAIN. If you already have an account and want to register additional domain names, you can do this in your Client Portal. Once you login go to the Order page and use the Register a Domain box to check if your domain is available for registration. If so, please follow the instructions on that page to register the .com domain you want. Note, that if the desired domain name is taken, you will receive suggestions about similar names. If you do not yet have an account with us, follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to Domain Registration.
  2. Enter your desired domain name in the search box and choose your preferred extension.
  3. Click “Search”. Your desired domain will now be checked for availability.
  4. If available, select the duration you wish to register the domain name for and click continue.
  5. Add DNS Management and Email Forwarding to your order (FREE!) and choose ID Protection if you wish.
  6. Click “Add Hosting” if you’d like to add a hosting plan for your new domain, otherwise proceed to checkout.
  7. You will now be asked to register your account and then to pay for your new domain name.
After you have successfully made your payment, your order will be processed shortly and the domain registered.
