Register a new domain
How to register a new domain
In the search box, enter the domain name you wish to register. You may also enter one or more keywords. The search results will contain a list of suggested domains. If the domain you entered does not appear in the list, this means it is not available for registration. Cloudflare currently does not support internationalized domain names (IDNs), also known as unicode, for example.
Click Purchase on the domain you wish to register. In rare instances, a domain that is not available for registration may appear in the search results. After clicking Purchase, a definitive availability check will be performed to confirm that the domain is actually available for registration.
Select the term (number of years) you wish to register the domain for and click Continue. Most top-level domains (TLDs) can be registered for a maximum of ten years. Some TLDs may have different term limits and these will be reflected in the drop-down options.
The expiration date and price will update automatically based on the term selected. The Renew On date is the date that the system will attempt to auto-renew the domain. All registrations have Auto-renew turned on by default; however, you may disable this option at any time.
Enter the contact details for the domain. These details will be used to create all of the required contacts (Registrant, Admin, Technical, and Billing), and may be updated after registration is completed. Refer to to learn the specific requirements for each contact field.
After entering the contact information click Continue. If any of the contact information is missing or not properly validated, an error message will appear and you will need to correct the data before proceeding.
The billing information will use the billing profile you have with Cloudflare, if one already exists. If there is no billing profile, you will need to enter your payment information.
The registration process may take up to 30 seconds to complete. Once the registration is complete, the browser will navigate to the domain management page where you may update the contacts, change the auto-renew settings, and add additional years to the term. You will also receive a confirmation email regarding your new domain registration.
At this time, you can only use ASCII characters for contact data. If the default contact has non-ASCII characters, you will need to update the domain contact details before proceeding. Cloudflare recommends that you update your default contact information to include ASCII characters only.
