WEB HOSTING AND DOMAIN NAMES

HOSTING AND DOMAIN NAME PURCHASE

 

DOMAIN NAME

There are several companies in the world today that sell domain names even in Nigeria. However, at the moment I do not use any from Nigeria. The one I previously used in Nigeria was recently bought over after many issues. If you would like to buy a .ng domain name which is basically Nigeria then drop a comment below I will answer you directly on the matter. There are some issues I need to relate to you directly so you can make the best choice.

 

MY DOMAIN NAME AND HOST RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. godaddy.com
  2. namecheap.com
  3. name.com

 

In order to buy a name simply visit any of the websites above choose your preferred name and proceed to cart. Once your purchase is successful you would be sent an email with the details of purchase. Keep the email very well. I recommend you buy your name from Godaddy or Name.com then proceed to buy the hosting from Namecheap.com

Since these are foreign companies you would be required to pay using Paypal or your credit or debit card details. If you don’t have Paypal, you can easily open one by going to their website. Click on Sign up and fill your details it is FREE!

Ensure your debit card and your phone number which is connected to your bank account is by your side while doing this.

The name one wants to use is like the identity of the website. You have to think much about this before buying it. I highly recommend Namecheap.com

SUMMARY

Simply buy your domain and hosting from namecheap and login with the details.
