The Sign-Up Process

Once you’ve reviewed the guidelines, you can proceed to the sign-up page.

  1. Click the Get Started button.

  3. You are now ready to create a domain. To start, you must first sign up for a free subdomain using your GGC username (i.e. username.domains.ggc.edu). To maintain consistency with domain naming conventions GGC, your initial domain name cannot be edited. Directions for purchasing a Top Level Domain (i.e. yourdomain.com) will be provided further down.

Option 1: Free Subdomain

Option 2: Buy a top-level domain from Reclaim Hosting

It is easy to create your own top-level domain. This allows you to select a URL for your website that is easy to remember and share.

While you are at Georgia Gwinnett College, this is available for a nominal cost (currently $15/year). If you choose this option, you are assuming responsibility for the annual payment. GGC will not provide payment for top-level domains. You can continue to use this domain after leaving Domains @ Georgia Gwinnett College, although the cost may increase.

To register a top-level domain log into your newly created cPanel, navigate to the Domains section, and click Register Top-Level Domain.

This panel offers a step-by-step guide to registering and adding a new top-level domain to your new cPanel account.

Option 3: Connect an existing domain to your cPanel

If you already have an existing domain that you’ve previously registered elsewhere, simply point your domain’s nameservers to ns1.reclaimhosting.com and ns2.reclaimhosting.com.
