I Registered My Domain Name, Now What?

What to do after registering your domain name

So you’ve searched for and registered a domain; and now are wondering what is the next step in getting your website online.

If this describes your situation, you’ll need to follow the below steps.

1. Sign up for web hosting

In order to have your website searchable online, you’ll need to set up a hosting account. This ensures that when someone types in “yourwebsite.com” it will load the website you’ve set up.

There are many web hosting companies you can choose from, and we happen to be one of them. At CanSpace, our website hosting starts at $4.99 CAD per month.

We also offer 24/7 customer support so you never have to worry about problems with your website. Click here to check out our hosting packages.

2. Set up your website (with WordPress)

You don’t have to set up your website with WordPress per-se, but for a lot of people it is usually the best solution. It’s even great at helping build online stores.

The benefit of WordPress is that there are tons of plug-ins and themes to choose, which help you quickly build a website with the functionality you need.

However, there are plenty of other content management systems you can use for your site outside of WordPress. At CanSpace, we integrate with all of the popular systems.

3. Point your domain to your website

Lastly, you will need to set up your domain to the website you’ve built online. If you’ve purchased your domain with CanSpace this is a simple process and our support team can help you out.

If you purchased your domain with another registrar but are choosing to host your website with CanSpace, simply reach out to our team and we will guide you in the process.
