Domain name registration can be done through any ICANN accredited registrar. There are lots of registrars to choose from, but some of the most popular include GoDaddy, Google Domains, and NameCheap.
If you're looking to register a domain name to use within your Rebrandly account, you can also complete your domain name registration directly through our platform here. This allows you to set up your own on-brand custom link shortener without the need for changing the DNS settings of a domain purchased elsewhere.
In Rebrandly's domain name search, results can be filtered by industry or price and a broad choice of domain names are available for just $2. Alternatively, if you've already purchased a domain that you'd like to use in Rebrandly, you can simply change its DNS settings.
Registering a domain name is straightforward, as long as the one you want is available just add it to your cart, fill in your personal and contact information on the ICANN registration form and add your payment details.
However, it's worth noting that there can be extra requirements when purchasing a domain ending with a ccTLD - or Country Code Top-Level Domain. ccTLDs are assigned to a specific country and contain two letters which represent that country. For example, .ca is Canada's ccTLD.
These ccTLDs aren’t under ICANN’s jurisdiction and each one decides its own policies - some have extra criteria for those who wish to purchase a domain. For example, to register a .ie domain - that's the ccTLD for Ireland - identification and proof of address is required.
Proof of your business name may also be required for domain name registration.
