Register a Domain with Hostwinds

Domain registrations are essential to having your sites and services be unique yet easily memorable. This guide goes over how to register a new domain through us.

Log in to the Client Area

Click the Register a New Domain Link. Domain registrations are essential to having your sites and services be unique yet easily memorable. This guide goes over how to register a new domain through us.

Please search for the domain name you want to register, along with the TLD (.com, .net, .info, .biz, .family, etc.), and add it to your cart. Note that if the domain is already taken, we will suggest alternate domain names that could work in their stead.

Note: If you have multiple domains you would like to register, you can add these by searching and adding additional domains using the same process. When you have found all the domains you would like to register, click the Checkout Button to configure your domains.

Configure your domain, then click the Proceed to Checkout Button.

We provide the option to get ID Protection (sometimes called WhoisGuard or Domain Privacy) by checking the box for each domain. Checking this box will add ID Protection to the order by hiding your personal information and is highly recommended.

There will also be the option to change the default Nameservers to allow for the domain to be pointed to any server of your choice, but you can change them at any point in the future as you need.

Ensure your account details are accurate on the checkout page.
Also, on the checkout page, set the registrant contact details for your domain. You can either use your existing Hostwinds account details or provide new contact details.

Check the items and amounts details for your order at the bottom of the checkout page. The icon will delete domains from the Checkout Page using the trash can, and you will have to restart the process. Read and check the Terms of Service checkbox, and click Complete Order.

Once done, your domain registration can take 24-48 hours to register the domain, especially if it is the first domain on your account, but typically will take much less time.

ICANN RAA regulations do require that the following valid contact information be supplied to register a new domain:

The Registrant's full name

The Registrant's full address, including street number and street name

The City

The State/Region

The zip/postal code

The Registrant's phone number

If this information is not included, we will not be able to register the domain. Domain registrations are essential to having your sites and services be unique yet easily memorable. This guide goes over how to register a new domain through us.
