Start by creating a free website to be able to sign in. Choose a temporary .sitew.com Internet address, then choose a design and validate your subscription. You can read the guide on the website builder, which will explain how you will be able to create your website very easily. To choose a domain name, upgrade to a superior package by clicking on this link : Premium Site or Pro Site.
You can now choose a domain name and verify its availability instantly. Choosing an appropriate domain name is important. It is preferable that it contains keywords and/or the name of your business or association. Your domain name must remain short (< 15 characters) and must be easily memorable. You can use dashes in your domain name, as well as numbers and dots. You can choose from a dozen of domain extensions. Remember that the most common ones are .com, then .us/.co.uk and .net/.org.
The Premium websites automatically benefit from an address corresponding to the domain name (10 addresses for the pro websites). This address is redirected to your current address in order to avoid installing a new software or using a new service. The address firstname.lastname@example.org is automatically pre-registered but you can customize it from the page My websites (Settings > Email Redirection).
