Order, register and activate a Domain

To reserve a Domain name you purchased through Aruba.it there are three steps to follow: Order, Register and Activate, see how below.

- Order
- Registrer

Order

Go to our Aruba Hosting site, enter the Domain Name of your choice in - Register a Domain -  and select your preferred domain extension. If the Domain name is occupied (not available), or rather already registered by another person and/or company, you will need to select another Domain name or change the extension, in order to proceed with the order.

If the Domain Name is available proceed with the order by selecting:

 - The main service you wish to associate with the Domain Name
 - Any additional service you wish to add
 - Accept the – General conditions of contract – for the supply of the Aruba.it Hosting service (available under – Terms and Conditions -).
 - In case of .it Domains, see the part under – Acceptance of Clauses for .it domain Registrations -.
- Proceed to create your account if you are a new customer, (- Form for New user) – or enter your  Login details, Login and Password, in the – Aruba user – box (and the Type of user)
 - Enter the Holder details (Registrant) of the Domain. These can be the details you provided when creating your account, with the possibility of a few changes, or you can register the Domain on behalf of another customer. 
 - Fill in the Billing details. These will be used to issue invoices and for other accounting purposes,  therefore we recommend making sure they are accurate.
 - Select the method of payment

After completing the order process, you will receive an email – Confirming the Order – at the  email addresses provided in the order form indicating the payment details. If you provided the same email address, you will receive a single email.
