Search for your Favorite Name
On the Homepage, use the “Search Domain” bar to enter your favorite domian name and search. In this case, we used “mybusinessdomain.org” as an example.
Confirm the Domain Name’s Availability
Here, you can see that the Domian Name is available and then I proceeded to “Add to Cart” followed by “Checkout“.
Note: In any case your search says “...is unavailable” simply know that the name you want to buy has been taken by someone else. It is either you choose from other available extentions like .org, .com .net etc, or search for another suitable Name to use.
When you have finally gotten an available Domain Name, you can proceed to “Add to Cart – Checkout”
Add to Cart & Proceed to Checkout
On this stage, you will need to take a look at the arrows and ensure you select the ones you need. Most often, you will need these addons (DNS Management, ID Protection, & Email Forwarding) for your new Domian Name. Luckily, WebManager offers these addons for free.
Hey! take a look at the green arrows on the image above, you will notice that your domain is already linked on WebManager’s Nameservers (dns1.webmanager.ng & dns2.webmanager.ng). You are expected to change them to your origin hosting server if only the domain is not hosted on WebManager.NG. Then, click on the continue to make your “Payment“.
