Go to Customer Service

If you are searching for the ideal domain name for your project, go to the Domain Checker, enter your desired domain name and click on Search. You will be able to buy the domain right away, if it is available, by adding it to the cart:

You will also be presented with more options of domain endings (also known as extensions or TLD) that you can register as well in order to boost your brand:

The More options section on Domain checker with additional TLD available for purchase

Select all the domains you want to purchase and continue to the cart, where you will find the renewal price and have the option to select the renewal period. If supported, domain privacy protection will be included for free as well 😃

What to Do if the Domain Name Is Not Available

If the domain name you chose is short or uses common terms, chances are it may be already taken by someone else – therefore, unavailable for purchase:

In that case, you can simply choose an alternative TLD. Click on All endings to see the full list of available names:

Next, select Add to cart to proceed with the domain registration.


  • Some TLD may not be available for purchase – you can still register the domain name using a different ending

  • Purchase of premium domains is not supported

How to Use the Domain with Your Website

In case you are planning to create a website, the domain name is one part of what you will need – the other is a hosting plan for your website's files. Alternatively, you can opt for a dedicated website builder.

Though we suggest you get a hosting plan along with your new domain name, you can still purchase the domain only. Domains purchased at Hostinger can be used with any hosting service of your choosing!

As soon as your domain setup is complete, you can easily point it to any hosting. Just follow this step-by-step article: How to point a domain to Cloudflare, Google Sites, and more.

After you specify any new DNS records for your domain, consider up to 24 hours for it to fully propagate worldwide. Once your domain is pointing elsewhere by nameservers, your DNS Zone management is moved to the provider you pointed the domain to and should be managed from there.
