Posted on by Patrick Hawkins

Before you can host a website on a domain, that domain has to be registered with the proper authorities. Domain registration through Liquid Web is a one-click process in our manage interface, but it may not be immediately obvious just where to do so. Here’s how:

Step 1: Search For A Domain

In manage, click Domains on the left-hand sidebar. On the right-hand side you will find Register Domain.

Register a new domain right from your Liquid Web control panel.

Enter the domain you wish to register. On this page you can even check to see if anyone else owns the domain by clicking on the Check Availability button.

Enter in the domain name you wish to purchase right from our Liquid Web control panel.

Select the domain you’d like to purchase by clicking Add and then Continue to advance to the next stage of purchasing.

Step 2: Duration & Renewal of Domain

On this screen you’ll be able to choose to Auto-Renew or have your domain registration information kept private (WHOIS Privacy Protection). Click Continue to advance to DNS Setup for your domain.

Buy a domain from Liquid Web and save money by auto-renewing!

Step 3: DNS Setup

If left blank, by default, our system will set up a zone file for you.  Or you have the option of choosing to set up custom nameservers.

Set up your nameservers within the LIquid Web control panel for new domains!

Step 4: Fill Out Registrant Info

Fill out this information for your domain.  Be sure to use an e-mail address that is always accessible because ICANN will periodically ask you to verify its validity.  Click Continue to review the details of your domain purchase and to complete the domain registration process.

The registrant info will appear in the WHOIS website if the privacy option is not selected.
