Steps to Buy a Domain Name from Godaddy.com
Here is the step-by-step process to purchase any domain name from a famous website Godaddy.com.
Step 1: Gmail Account
The first step you have to do is creating a Gmail account. If you already an existing user then use that Gmail ID for the purchase.
To this Gmail account, you will receive the verification Email of your Godaddy account, purchase details, Expiry details, Offers, etc.
Step 2: Visit Godaddy.com website
There are two ways to visit Godaddy website. One is direct and the other is Google search method.
In this method, type the website title www.godaddy.com and visit the website. When you are visiting the website directly you may or may not be available for the ongoing offers. If you are a new user, the offer will be applied. If you are confused about finding the offer follow the indirect method.
Indirect Method – Google Search
In this method, type Godaddy low price domains in google and click on search button. Click on the first result of Godaddy offer link and visit the website.
In this way, you are directed to the offer page and the offer is applied by default.
Step 3: Search Domain Name
After visiting the website, type the domain name you want to buy in the search bar and click on the search button. You can select any extension like .com, .in, .org, .net, etc. Check out the offers when the time of your purchase.
Check the spellings before you proceed to the next step.

Once you have selected your domain name, click on the Add to cart and then proceed by selecting “Continue to Cart” option.
Step 5: Selection of years, Privacy, Hosting
In this step, you have to select few options as per your requirement.
Number of Years: You can select from minimum 1 year to maximum 10 years for your domain registration. If you have paid for 1 year, then you need to renew your domain name after 1 year. If it is 2 years, then you have to renew after 2 years. However, the price depends on the ongoing offers at that time.
Privacy: If you want to keep your contact information private, then you need to pay extra charges for that. If not, you can leave it public.
Hosting: If you are interested in Godaddy hosting, then you can buy it here or with some other ongoing offer where you can get a free domain when purchasing of hosting. However, it all depends on the Godaddy ongoing offers. I suggest you do some research before selecting the hosting platform.
Once you have selected, click on “proceed to checkout” option.
