Step 2: Get Domain for Store
In Step 1 you created an online store and although you get a free vDomain from hipKart but as it was explain into course you must have a domain for your store. To get a domain open GoDaddy.com
Enter a desired domain name here and then Add To Cart. Don’t worry if you don’t find exact match as you want like if you want kishorhandicrafts.com and Godaddy says this domain is not available don’t panic in this situation you can try different combinations of these as follow
kishorehandicrafts.com – Notice the “e” before “h”
kishorhandicraft.com – Removed the “s” in the last
kishorehandicraft.com – Added “e” before “h” and remove “s” in the last
thekishorhandicrafts.com – Add “the” before the name
Same way you can create any changes to your desired name and find which domain is available. Adding/Removing characters for domain name is never an issue it is the best practice to get desired domain name. As you see your desired domain name is available Click on “Add to Cart” button
As you Add to Cart your domain then click on “Continue Cart”
As you Click on Continue Cart you will see a page from GoDaddy asking you for more services like Hosting, Privacy, Email address etc. Choose “No Thanks” for all services and click on the button “Continue with these options”
