To register a new domain name, you'll first have to log into your billing account at cp.hostek.com (http://cp.hostek.com/).

Once logged in, click the "Order" link at the bottom of the "Quick Navigation Links" at the right hand of your screen.

On the next page, click the "Register Domain" link under the "Browse Products & Services" section. This will take you to a page where you can enter the domain name you wish to register and check for its availability. If the domain shows it is available, click the "Add to cart" button to proceed with the order.

At this point you can choose whether or not to add ID protection to your order. If you choose to add ID protection, then your contact information will not displayed when a WHOIS lookup is performed on the domain name. This page also lets you choose what name servers you want the domain to use. By default, the system will fill this in with the correct name servers for your hosting plan. If you manage your DNS elsewhere though, this will let you fill in the appropriate name servers. When you click the "Update Cart" button on this page, you'll be taken to the shopping cart.

On the shopping cart page, you'd click the "Checkout" button and verify your billing information and choose the payment type. After you complete the order, you'll need to pay the Invoice that is generated in the "My Invoices" section of your account. Once the invoice is paid, our team will register the domain for you and send a confirmation email once complete.
