Domain Setup (GoDaddy)
Hosting like WP Engine does not sell domain names like other hosting providers.
If you are in need of a domain name, we suggest you head over to GoDaddy to purchase your domain name.
Once you’re on their homepage, you’ll see a text field at the top of the screen which says Find your perfect domain to search for a domain.
You can then search for your desired domain name to see if it’s available. Once you’ve typed in the name click the search icon.
If the domain is available it will have a tick next to it.
Click the continue to cart button.
You’ll be brought to a screen with a few other products which you can add to your domain including Privacy and an Email Addresses. Check off the additional products that you’d to have. If you’d like email setup under the domain you’re purchasing, you can do so by selecting an email plan.
Then click the continue to cart button.
On the review page, you can choose how many years you wish to purchase the domain for, anything from one to ten years. To make your selection, simply click on the drop down.
You’ll then need to either select Create Account or Sign In in order to complete the domain purchase.
Once you’ve either signed in or created an account, you’ll be on the checkout screen which you’ll then need to fill out your Billing Information then Payment Information.
Once done, hit the Complete Purchase button.
Congratulations you now own your domain. You can now move forward to the next step of connecting your domain to your site hosted on WP Engine or your host.
