6. Sign in with your email and password.



7. Fill up the “Domain request form”.

For “Primary Name Server” & “Secondary Name Server”
You can use your hosting company’s server if you have a hosting account OR temporarily enter NS1.FREEHOSTING.COM and NS2.FREEHOSTING.COM. You can change them later.



8. You need to submit documents after this. Download the sample and edit the form, take a screenshot. Upload it by clicking the “Browse…” button. (should be .jpg or .jpeg)





Successful upload.



9. Upload Citizenship certificate for Individual and Company certificate for Companies.



Successful upload.



Done. Final result.



Because it is a manual process, wait for the activation. If rejected, you will get “rejected” under Status and reasons for the rejection under Remarks.

If successfully activated. Go to “Active domain” in the Dashboard.



You will get confirmation within the next day (most of the time), if it’s not holiday. Also, editing the Name Server is manual, so if you want to point your domain name to your hosting - you need to get the Nameserver URL of your hosting and click “Edit DNS” button then put your information there.

Note: If you want to host your site for free. I recommend FreeHOSTING.com.
