Domain Name = Your Home Address

A company name with a non-matching domain name is a disaster for your business. So in order to have exact business name plus dot-com or other TLD extensions, you have to buy a domain name as soon as possible.

1. Namecheap (.com from $10.98)

2. Godaddy (.com from $12.17)

3. Google Domains (.com from $12)

After you buy the domain, you can manage / configure domain name nameserver pointing to the new hosting nameserver.
