Domains ending in .com, .net, .org are among the domain TLDs. To own such a domain, you need to register this domain with a registrar. The registration cost is around RM40-RM60.
There are also domains that are local such domains end with a country code. For example .com.my, .my, .org.my, .edu.my. WIth this domain, you know this is a Malaysia based site. The cost of a local domain is usually more expensive than a TLD type domain. The process is also a bit long. Local domains require proof that you are in that country or have a legal company in that country.
Buy a Web Host
A web host is a large computer (aka, server) that stores your website. Some giant companies – such as Amazon, IBM, and FB, own and manage their web servers; other businesses simply rent their servers from hosting providers (which is much cheaper and easier).
Note: Skip this step if you chose a website developer to create your website.
What are your options in hosting?
Web hosting is available in a variety of packages today. Traditionally, web hosting providers have only been involved in renting servers with basic software and technical support. Hosting your website with a traditional hosting provider is usually cheaper and more flexible; but requires a little extra work for you to set up the website. Currently, companies combine different services and allow users to build, host, and manage websites from a single service provider.
We usually call this company a Website Developer or an Online Store Developer. Hosting a website on this “bundle” platform is usually expensive and less flexible; but you will be able to build a website or online store easily.
