The first step in taking your new website live is having a domain for it to operate on. Click here to see more information about what a domain name is. Selecting a domain name is important. You want the domain name to be memorable, and preferably no longer than it needs to be to identify your organization. Click here to check the availability of the domain name you want to use.
Once you have chosen a domain name, you can register it yourself at any number of domain registrars (we recommend www.namecheap.com). The typical cost for a domain name registration is $10-$15 per year. Once the domain is registered, you can set the DNS records yourself and then let us know, or ask us to set them for you by filling out this form. Keep in mind that you will need to keep track of this domain account and keep your contact information updated, or your site will stop functioning.
Another option for your new domain name is to have us register it on your behalf and keep it in our domain management program. Your cost for this would be $25 per year. For this fee, we keep your domain name paid up and the contact information updated for as long as you are a client of Faithwebsites. If you want us to register a domain in our domain management program, fill out this form.
