Hello! I am thinking of starting a blog on Internet related to photography. How do I actually buy a website, where do I have to pay the fee? I also want to know how do I check if the name that I have in my mind is a valid name for a website. Are there any websites which tell me if its a valid name or not? And by the way who is the governing body to which I am supposed to pay the fee to have my own website/blog?
Checking for available names for a blog
There many websites and groups offering website hosting. You can purchase it at the click of a button. Following their instructions. Be careful in making payments in this websites. You can pay it using credit card.
First using the site “namecheap.com” you have to type the name of the website you want to build and launch. Their system will check for your prescribed or suggested website name and if it’s unique, it will show you message “This Domain is not available” and on the opposite side you have to click “Make Offer.” Make an offer on how much you can bid for it. The website administrators will contact you if that domain is eligible and you have the right offer. They will ask you to pay payment through checking account or credit card. There are wide range of domain or website name providers that you can find through web. Just be careful on making payments before you post your credit card number and important information about you. Check first if the website host is legit.
