Buying a Domain Name with Name.com
Now that you know what Name.com offers, let me show you how to buy a domain name. Open up the Name.com website, you’ll immediately notice the big search box, which actually is your start point. However, wait a second; try to refresh the site. The title above the box will change. I really love the titles they have, so try them out.
Okay, now enter the desired domain name into the search box and click Search. You will be taken to the results page, where you will see if your domain is available. If you’re into premium domains, you will see associated premium domain names which you can pick from.
Choose desired domains and click Checkout. In the Checkout Review, you will have the option to select several TLD’s to register and maybe pick some related domains. If you have one, you can enter a promo code here and finish the checkout process.
