Domain: The domain name you wish to host, like example.com
Username: After you enter a domain name, click on this field, and it will automatically fill up your username or enter any other username you wish to use.
Password: Enter a password or use a password generator. Copy the password in a safe place. It will be required while accessing your newly-created account.
