A domain name is what people type into a browser to find a website, similar to how you use a street address to find a building. Every website, server, or digital device that is connected to the Internet has an assigned IP address that you can use to view or visit it. This IP address is a long string of numbers and letters that would be very difficult for people to memorize, so a domain name is simply a human version of that IP address.

Just enter the web address you want to register in the search box. If the name you entered is already registered, we'll provide alternate name suggestions. If the domain is available, follow the instructions on the screen to complete the registration process.

To check if a domain name is available, simply type it into GoDaddy's search bar and we'll let you know right away if someone else already owns it.

Domain name registration is the process of finding a web address (such as GoDaddy.com or LilysBikes.com) and then registering to use it. You don't technically own the domain, but once you've registered it, it's yours for as long as you continue to pay the annual registration fee.

The duration of your domain registration may vary depending on the domain you purchase. Many domain name registrars will allow clients to register domains for 10 years at a time, but typically clients will register domains for one to three years.

Purchase an annual web hosting plan or any annual managed WordPress plan from GoDaddy and you'll automatically qualify for a free domain.

Once you click Add to Cart for a WordPress or hosting plan, you will have the option to select monthly or yearly terms. Be sure to choose an annual term if you want to get the domain for free.

Click Continue with these options at the bottom of the page to proceed to the next step. This is where you will see a search bar to find the domain name you want.

Once you've found the name you want, simply add the domain to your cart and proceed to checkout.
