For your Self hosted domain name, you need to invest a little bit of amount.

There are several domain name registration available in India. You should visit there to get your own domain name.

I recommending Godaddy (you can also try Blue Host, Hostgator and many others to find your perfect domain name) to find your own perfect domain name.

First, you check the availability of your domain name which you want to. Once your domain name is shown available, you register it by providing your personal details as showing on the time of domain registration.
