  4. Click “Register Domain”:

    Click the “Register Domain” button to start the domain registration process.

  5. Search for a Domain:

    Enter the domain name you want to register in the search bar. Route 53 will show you available domains. If your desired domain is available, proceed to the next step.

  6. Add to Cart:

    Select the domain you want to register and click “Add to Cart.”

  7. Review Your Order:

    Review your order to ensure it’s correct. If you’re satisfied, click “Continue.”

    Provide the necessary information, including contact details and domain name settings. Choose your registration duration (e.g., 1 year, 2 years).

  9. Add Privacy Protection (Optional):

    Route 53 offers Domain Privacy Protection (WHOIS privacy) to shield your personal information. You can add it if needed.

  10. Review and Confirm:

Keep in mind that it might take some time for the domain registration process to complete. Once done, you’ll have control over the domain settings in the Route 53 dashboard.
