So you’ve picked out a blog name and you are ready to buy your domain. Congrats! Here’s how to search for and purchase a website name (domain).
When you “buy a domain name” what you are technically doing is registering your right to use a web address for a certain amount of time. Namecheap and other services like GoDaddy (not recommended) are licensed by iCANN that governs the availability of web adresses.
– If you are NOT ready to work on your blog yet, but just want to purchase the name, you don’t need to buy hosting or an SSL certificate, yet.
