I'm considering buying a domain, but I am a complete newbie when it comes to this, therefore, needs some clearing up on this subject :tazz:

Is it possible to pay for a domain using existing paypal credits? I don't have a credit card but I do make a little bit of money through paypal by designing. Is it possible to just deduct the "money" from my paypal account?

Are there taxes that come with the purchase?

Does it matter if you buy the domain from a company other than your hosting company? Is there extra fees involved?


Thanks in advance for your help.

It depends if the place you buy the domain from supports PayPal. Places that do accept it (GoDaddy.com for example), often have a We Now Accept PayPal Button somewhere on their page.

Are there taxes that come with the purchase?


I am not aware of any taxes involved with domain purchasing.

Does it matter if you buy the domain from a company other than your hosting company? Is there extra fees involved?


No and no. All you need are the name servers for your host (often ns1.website.com and ns2.website.com) which you can configure to be the nameservers for your domain.
