Register a New Domain

Registering a New Domain is quick and simple. Whatever domain you’re looking for, we have 120+ extensions — whether it be .com, .org, .shop — you name it! They’re all affordable. (And P.S. — We’ll be adding another 100-150 TLDs VERY soon.)

It’s also important to note that domains are for Agency Plan members ONLY. We can only offer this kind of service at wholesale pricing by making it exclusive (just as we did with Quantum hosting).

We provide domains purely at cost (purchase and renewal), with no margin for us (except to cover transaction fees) so that you can resell them to your clients with your own markup and save money on your existing provider.

Every domain type has a different cost. You can also request a domain extension if you have another extension in mind!

So, now that you know the gist of our domains, here’s…

Where to Begin

Registering a new domain starts from the Domains tab and Register New Domain. Just type the domain name you want to use.

Whatever domain suits your needs, type it in.

Once you type in the domain name you prefer, a list of options will appear with various prices.

In this example, I’d like to register the name ‘awesomewebguy.’ As you can see, many top-level domain options appeared (e.g. .org, .net, .online, etc.) under Matches.

The prices vary for all domains.

Want to see other options? Click Load More, and you’ll get others.

There are plenty of options to choose from.

WPMU DEV domains also have Suggestions for a new domain based on your search criteria.

More options that may be suitable for a domain.

Once you have a domain name, click Buy Now. And that’s it!

You’ll be directed to a registration page. From this page, you pick out the Registration Terms. This includes the Registration Period, Renewal Price, and Auto-Renew.

To start, select a Registration Period. This can be anywhere from one to ten years!

Choose between 1-10 years in a click.

Also, determine whether you’d like to auto-renew or not (you can always change this later – as you’ll see).

Auto-renew is a hands-off approach to ensure your domain stays active.

Just to note, Domain Privacy is automatically incorporated with every domain.

Domain Privacy is automatically included.

Next, enter the Registrant information. This is information about you as the domain owner. None of this information is publicly shared or on WHOIS.

Click the box to save as your default registrant information.

Once your domain is successfully registered, you can automatically add DNS records by clicking connect to a hosted site. If you don’t want to connect your domain to a hosted site – no biggie. Click Skip for Now.

The registration was successful!

That being said, let’s say you want to connect domain to a hosted site. Here’s how it’s done…

Add Domain to Hosted Site

Adding a domain to a hosted site with WPMU DEV doesn’t take much at all to set up.

You can do this while creating your domain or after the domain is verified and completed. Just select from the dropdown what site you would like the domain to be hosted on.

All of your hosted domains will appear here.

Add your domain to a hosted site at any time. From the Domains tab, you’ll see by your site a Link Icon.

Click on the link icon, and then Connect to a Hosted Site. It will bring up a dropdown (just like the image above) where you select the site to host from.

Just click Connect to a Hosted Site, and select from the dropdown what site you’d like to use.

Select any site you want to add your domain to!

Click Save, and you’ll see your domain’s DNS status. It may take a little while to complete. You can recheck your status by tapping Settings (the ellipsis).

It will take just a little while to get the DNS and SSL status completed.

Below this area, you’ll also see the DNS information for the site you’re using with your domain. It includes the CNAME Record, A Record, and AAAA Record.

Note: if you use the Connect Domain feature, you don’t have to manually add any DNS record.

All the information is clearly displayed for quick reference.

View Your Registered Domains

Once you register a new domain, it will be located under Registered Domains. If you view it soon after registering a domain, you’ll see that its Registrant Status maybe be ‘verifying.’

The domain name, status, registrant, registrant status, and expiration date are displayed.

A message will appear indicating that as well.

Times vary, depending on several factors.

So, how do you go about verifying the registrant status?

Confirm Your Registrant Information

Once you register your domain, you’ll receive an email. This is to ensure that you are who you say you are regarding your domain ownership and to complete your registration.

Whatever email address you include in your Registrant Information is where this email will be sent. Once opened, this is what it says:

Your particular domain will be displayed in the body of the email.

It contains two links: one is to review ICANN’s Policy, and the other is to continue on with verification.

Once you verify your information — you’re all set!

When verified, you’ll get notified immediately.

Once your contact info is verified, you’ll be notified.

Please keep in mind that if you don’t verify within 15 days, the domain will be suspended until you verify it. So, make sure to complete this important step.

Domain Management in The Hub

All of your domains are in one place in The Hub under Domains. This is your one-stop area where you can new, update, manage, and more.

Every domain you have will be shown here, whether it be one or thousands of domains.

By clicking on the ellipsis by individual domains, you instantly have access to key features, such as:

Manage Domain
Renew Domain
Update Contact Information
Update Nameservers
Update DNS
Want to manage a domain? It’s quickly and easily accessible.

To make it easier for you and your clients, you can activate Auto Renew in one click.

The renewal price is also indicated.

Click on the name or status of the domain to get to the Domain Overview page. From the Overview, you can view a ton of information. Everything from Domain Status, Registration Date, GDPR status- – and more!

Be sure to check out our documentation for an in-depth look.

Domain Overview

Get a 360-degree view from the Domain Overview.

This is an overlook where you can see the domain status (active or inactive), expiration date, whether auto-renew is activated – and more!

The Domain Overview gives you a whole spectrum of information about the domain.

Perform tasks from this area as well, such as renewing a domain, activating auto-renew, and implementing transfer lock.

Find out more in our documentation.

Contact Information

All the contact information regarding the domain Owner, Admin, Billing, and Tech are in the Contact Information tab. You can always adjust, add, and delete information.

Need to make any changes? Just click ‘Edit Info’ – and change as needed.

Manage DNS

All of the current DNS records are located in the Manage DNS area. From you, you can add a Subdomain, email, or custom DNS records.

All the DNS information is in one spot.

Learn a lot more in our guide on how to add a Subdomain.

Filtering Domains

Filtering domains is a way to quickly and easily find specific domains, organize the list of domains you want to view, find who’s registered for domains, and more!

The Filter button gets you started.

Once clicking Filter, you have options for:

Domain Status
Registrant
Registrant Status
Auto Renew
Hosted Site Status
Click Apply to look for a specific domain.

Each option has different varibles in their dropdowns. For example, if you choose Domain Status, the dropdown includes Active, Suspended, and Expired.

Filter domains by status.

Connected Domains

View all of your Connected Domains in one place. This section displays all your connected domains and their status (e.g. propagated correctly or pending).

In this example, there are two propagated domains and one pending propagation.

You can Manage DNS, Recheck DNS, and Delete on the ellipsis.

Want to manage DNS? Just click the ellipsis.

If you click Manage DNS, you can add the Nameservers and view Records (e.g. AAAA and A). It also displays the TTL for each record.

DNS management is all available in one spot!

It also indicates where it directs to by each type of DNS record.

Client Association

The Client Association feature lets you associate a domain with a client from your Clients & Billing portal. Additionally, it allows you to easily change or remove the client that you may have associated with the domain when you registered it.

By associating a client with a domain, it automatically populates the Owner Contact Information of that domain with the client’s information, making it quick and less time-consuming to input. Also, this can be edited at any time.

The Client Assocationa section is located under any specific domain.

Click Add Client to get started.

Get started in a click.

From there, there’s a dropdown where you’ll choose the client to associate the domain.

Scroll down and select the client you’d like this domain to be associated with.

That’s it! Your client is now associated with this domain.

You can remove clients at any time, and also, if you have granted the client a Client Role that includes View Domains, they can do just that and also change information — if allowed. For more information, be sure to read our documentation.

You can see how simple and easy it is to set up, implement, and manage domains with WPMU DEV and The Hub! With a new domain, you can be up and running in just a few clicks.
