    If at least one domain is registered, in the dashboard view, choose the Manage Domains button, and then in the Manage Domains dialog box, choose Register New.

  2. In the Register Domain dialog box, enter a Name, Retention Period, and Description. These values correspond to the similarly-named parameters in the RegisterDomain action.
