Registering a Domain

There are two reasons to register a domain with DNSimple: when it’s a newly purchased domain, or to register a domain for which you’re already managing the DNS.

When applicable, we recommend opting for our “auto-renew” feature to avoid your domain expiring if you plan to retain ownership.

To register a domain
  1. Log in to DNSimple with your user credentials.
  2. Click Add Domain from your Dashboard and select the appropriate account if you have more than one.
  3. Fill out the domain name.
  4. If you have linked an integrated domain provider, you can choose to register your domain through them or through DNSimple.
  5. Choose whether you’d like Whois Privacy Protection or auto-renewal on the domain (if applicable).
  6. Click Register Domain.
  7. Provide contact details for the registrant of the domain, or choose a contact from those you’ve already created.
  8. Click Register Domain.

The total registration price will be held on your card immediately. Your card will be charged once the registration completes. If the registration fails, funds will be released.
