GoDaddy Domain Name FAQs
Registering a domain name with GoDaddy is simple and takes only a few minutes to complete. Start by searching for a domain name that you’re interested in purchasing using the GoDaddy domain search tool. After finding a domain name that you want to buy and register, simply select Checkout to complete your purchase. Afterward, the domain name you selected will become registered to you.

Domain names are needed for several reasons. For one, they serve as your website’s distinct name on the internet. In order to promote a business or brand online, having a domain name that matches the business is essential.
It’s also how visitors find your website online. It acts as the street address for your website. Without a domain name, you would need to tell people to visit your website at an IP address which, let’s be honest, no one would likely remember, or visit.
To find out if the name you want is available, enter your desired domain name in the GoDaddy domain search box. If it is available, then you will be able to purchase and register it. If it is not available, you will be shown similar alternative options and domain extensions that are available for purchase.
There are a few reasons why GoDaddy is the preferred registrar for millions of customers around the world. Among the top reasons include:
- GoDaddy is the world’s largest domain name registrar: With 82+ million domains under management, this makes GoDaddy the leader for domain name registration.
- Wide selection: When using the GoDaddy domain name search, you are accessing a powerful engine that searches the web for a vast selection of names across the globe.
- Award-winning support: GoDaddy offers highly-acclaimed support for customers who register domains.
A domain backorder is sort of like purchasing priority seating for a domain name you want to buy, but that is not currently available for purchase. Think of it as a reservation or waiting list of sorts.
With a domain backorder, you have a better chance at securing the domain name you want when it becomes available because you are essentially being moved to the top of the waiting list. And when the domain name you want expires and becomes available to the public for purchase, you’ll be among the first to know about it, giving you a much better chance to buy it for yourself.
