      Register a domain name. Go to Register.com to find the domain name you will want to purchase. Make sure that the name of the domain matches with the idea you have for your web page. Enter the domain name on the main page of Register.com and press Go. The next page will tell you if the domain name is available. If it is, go ahead and register it--there is an annual fee to register a domain name. If the name is not available, choose another one.
