Register Your Website Domain Name
Once you've settled on a name, you'll need to register it with a registrar. GoDaddy is only one of many, many options. Plus, you'll want to sign up for "domain email," so your email address is more professional, like one of ours, "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Keep in mind that you don't have to host your website where you register your name. So register the domain, but wait to sign up for hosting until you have a better idea of how you're going to build your website. Not every registrar is a good host, and website builders typically include hosting.
