How to Register a Domain Name with NameSilo

You'll get to “Domain Search Results” page where you can view your result to confirm if the domain is available or taken in any of the extensions.

From the domain name availability search above, you can see that my proposed name is available in all the extensions i.e. .com, .net, .org, etc because of the green color symbol displayed. If it has been taken, you'll see orange color(s) in any or all of the extensions that is/are taken.

As you can see from the screenshot above and in my wildest imagination, I wanted to see if Business.com is available to pick up so that I can register it. But all the extensions of “business” have been registered except the business.xyz domain name extension.

For now, I will advise you to focus on the .com extension. If your domain name is available, simply click on the “REGISTER CHECKED DOMAINS” blue button. It will take you to the next page as shown in the image below.

You have to click the radio button that says, “No, I don't want to protect my domain.” If you don't click this button, you will be paying $0.75 per month for the first option that says, “Activate domain protection now $0.75/month.” That will come to a total of $9 per year in addition to the domain name registration cost.

After you have clicked on the radio button, click “Continue to Cart” orange button. You'll be taken to the next page that shows the details of your provisional check out order.

Closely review your order to make sure that no add-on service is inadvertently included which will definitely increase the cost of your domain registration.

Please, check the screenshot below to see my final order for this illustration.

As you can see above, the final order for this domain name registration is $8.99 which is my expected cost to pay. You can click the “Continue-->” button to go to Account information page.

If you have already signed up with NameSilo before doing domain name availability check, simply fill out your username and password as an “Existing user” and click “LOGIN” button. Otherwise, create an account and verify your email address with NameSilo.

The next page is where you will click the radio button beside VISA, MasterCard, etc payment options.

When you click the radio button, the card payment sheet will open for you to fill out. Enter every information that is required on this page. The “CVV2 Code” is the three figure at the back of your MasterCard.

Remember to choose your specific country from the list of countries' drop down menu by clicking the small rectangular arrow and finally click “PLACE MY ORDER.”
