Find out how to register a new custom domain name for use with your Comcast Business email and website.

About domain names

A domain name is the label used to identify your website (Example: comcast.com). It is also the name that will appear after the @ symbol in your email address (Example: john_smith@comcast.com). Read "Choosing a domain name" for more information on how to choose a domain name for your business.

Your Comcast Business Internet service includes one free custom domain. Additional domains can be purchased for $2.99 per month. Follow the steps below to register a new custom domain. If you created a domain name that ends in "comcastbiz.net" during activation, this does not count as your free custom domain.
