Godaddy is the World's largest domain name registrar and people use it for registering domain names for their websites and blogs. People choose Godaddy Domain because it's very cheap and you can easily pay with your credit card or local bank account and within a second you can register a domain name.

They have more than 17 million customers worldwide and more than 73 million domain names under management with 24/7 customer service.

Godaddy offers a variety of payment methods to accept money like if you live in United States then you could use your Visa or MasterCard or UnionPay and you could also pay with your Paypal account or direct bank transfer but if you live in Pakistan like me then you can't use Bank transfer.

Before I tell you how to buy Godaddy domain I am going to tell you how I managed to buy the domain using UBL mastercard. When you are using a UBL mastercard then for buying anything online, you need to activate an internet session from UBL. 

For that you have to call UBL service centre and ask them to activate an internet session for you, they will take all kind of card details and a keyword which is a mother name basically. ( but in my case I had to visit my UBL branch to get my keyword) Then after complete verification from UBL, your session will successfully be activated and within hours you will be able to buy your domain.

Now come to the point and follow the below steps how to buy Godaddy Domain:
