One of the first steps in creating your automated affiliate website is registering a

domain name. A domain name is simply the address to which your website resides.

example: is the number 1 domain registrar and

they are the one I recommend and personally use for all my domain names. Their pricing

and support are solid. You want a domain name that is short, memorable and somewhat “brandable”.

If you like golf and your new affiliate store is going to offer golfing equipment you

would want a domain that has golf as a keyword. Head over to and do

some quick searches on some ideas you may have for your first store. Prices range from

0.99 cents to $11.99 or so. This is for a year which is really cheap for starting out. You can

lower the amount by extending the year however I would just do 1 year to start.
