Domain Registrations are $19.99 per year and Domain Transfers are $11.99. When you transfer a domain, it will automatically add an additional year to your existing renewal date.
Domains can be easily registered right within your Account Management Panel (AMP). The domain TLD (top level domain) extensions we can register here at InMotion Hosting are listed here:
|Available Domain Extensions||.com||.net||.org||.us||.biz||.info|
Of note, if you want to register a domain name with a .us extension, you will need to have a physical US address.
How to Register a New Domain Name
- Login to AMP (Account Management Panel).
- Click the Register Domain button in the Manage My Account section.
Or hover over Domains in the top navigation menu then click Register New Domain.
- You will then be taken to the Domains page.
- Once you type in the domain name that you would like to register, you will be presented with more options.
- When you have confirmed your selection, the journey will proceed to the Term & Privacy page.
- After you have made your selection and click Add To Cart, you will proceed to the Cart Checkout where you can review your order, select a payment method, and order your new domain.
Once the order is complete, you can now begin to use your domain!
Did you know that whenever a domain name is registered, The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires your personal information be published in the WHOIS database? This includes your mailing address, phone number, and email address!
With Domain Privacy Protection from InMotion Hosting, we will make our information available to the public instead of yours. This can help protect you from potential spammers, telemarketers, and even identity thieves. This would cost only an additional $15.99 annually! Otherwise, we would have to use the billing information we currently have on file for your account. This is usually the name and address of the person who subscribed for the hosting account initially.
Your name will remain as the registrant contact so that you retain complete ownership of the domain. To register a new domain you will first need to log into AMP. If you need more information about logging into AMP.
Domain Privacy Protection is available with all hosting accounts, including shared hosting, VPS hosting, and our dedicated servers.
What about other domain extensions?
Keep in mind you can still host any domain with InMotion by pointing to our nameservers, and adding the domain to your cPanel. There are many other domain extensions that are available as well. There are extensions specific to every country as well as other more restrictive extensions such as .edu. Very soon, ICANN will be releasing around 700 other extensions for sale as well. If you need a domain that has an extension different from the ones we offer, your best bet is to visit Google and do a search for a registrar of that type. For example, if I want a .ca domain, I would do a search for “register .ca domain“.
