Getting a Domain Name Where do I get one? You become the “owner” of a domain name when you pay a registration fee for using it. The companies that provide the registrations are called “registrars”. To register a name, you go to the website of any accredited registrar (or a reseller), create an account and pay the registration fee. How much are the registration fees? Registrars compete for your business so fees vary. Typical fees range from $10/year to $35/year per name.
