How to Register a Domain Name
Registering a domain name with Softpal is as easy as ABC. I will show you all the steps with pictorial representations. I want to believe that your are reading this from a PC (computer) because it will present the pictures more accurately. This tutorial is actually for those who are not used to the internet. Anybody who can open a facebook account or an email account will be able to register a domain without needing this tutorial.
The first step at registering your domain name is to search for the domain availability. To find out if the domain your are about to register is not already been used by another person, you need to search the domain by going to www.softpal.com.ng. Once your are on the site, click on WEB HOSTING and wait for the page below to appear.
Enter your choice domain in the search box and then search. If the domain is available for registration, you will see a notification “congratulation, your domain is available” as shown below. If the domain is not available, you can search for another domain name.
Once this page appears, click on the “Add to Cart” button below the notification. After clicking on the “Add to Cart” button, the button will change to “Checkout”, click on it to continue. The page below will appear.
Click on “Checkout” and wait for the page below to appear.
Fill-out the form properly with your information and select between Online Payment and Bank Payment. After filling-out the form, click on “Complete Order”.
If you had selected Online Payment, you will be taking to our payment processor’s website (Voguepay.com) to complete your order.
Online payment means that you will be able to pay using your ATM cards. Select whether your card type is Visa or Master Card and then click on “Make Payment”. Other steps are easy; just follow the instructions on their page to complete your payment. If you are asked to enter your CVV anywhere, just enter the 3 digit numbers behind your ATM card. Once payment is completed, inform us by sending a text message to 08024227424. Please mention the domain name in the text message so that we can activate it once payment has been confirmed. If the domain that you have now chosen is different from the one we have on record, mention the two domains in the text message.
If you had selected Bank Payment, you will be taking to the page shown below.
You will see our account numbers on the top right corner of the page. Make a bank payment or transfer to any of the accounts and then send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please attach your teller with the mail and also mention the domain name that you wish to register. Once we activate the domain, you will be able to use your website with the domain. You can also inform us by sending a text message to 08024227424. Please mention the domain name in the text message so that we can activate it once payment has been confirmed. If the domain that you have now chosen is different from the one we have on record, mention the two domains in the email or text message.
