New to making websites! I need help
I went to hostgator.com and bought a package and paid a fee for a total price of 1 year for a new website. (Roughly 80 dollars) 'webdomainhere.com'
Then when I logged into control panel, it said You have the option of registering this domain. Im like 'what? didn't I already type in the name of the domain when I bought the package?' It offered to register it for about 10 dollars. Whats the difference and do I need this?
Im really confused with the terms so I dont know if Im using it right. I think I paid for a hosting package for a new domain and now it's giving me the option to pay to register that domain. Do I need to do this?
