    How should I host and register my website?

    What are my options? I have a domain name in mind which is not taken. Should I go to one company for the domain, and another for hosting? Can I save by doing this all with one service?

    My best answer would be to shop around for a complete package that suits your specific needs. Lots of hosting companies will register your domain for little to nothing as part of a hosting package. However, the packages vary depending on how much bandwidth and storage spare you need. If this is your first attempt at making a website I'd advise finding a hosting company that will handle the domain registration for you; if you do it separately there will be a couple extra steps to associate your domain name with your hosting company's server.

    Keep in mind that most hosting offers are billed yearly, so you'll be making somewhat of a commitment. Most likely you will be able to save by using the same provider for your web space and domain name.

    Depending on what you're looking for. There are a couple I recommend:

    For business, consider

    For artistry, music or personal; I recommend

    MAGIX has some really great templates set to go, as so does 1&1, it depends on your needs. Both are great for us. There are free to try services as well, just Google for options out there...

    don't host your website at your domain seller.

    you can get your domain from godaddy and host on 1and1

    Yes . You can do that. You can find domain on Goddady, or others. And hosting , you may looking for a medium rate service as hostgator, bluehost. You can saving by use one service, but with good domain service , they are not good as hosting. And with good hosting service, they sell domain from others, this make the domain price higher.

    I think you are new to this Hosting service; not at all a problem you can book a site and do hosting in different services if you are aware of it . But you are new to this one I recommended go to the service which offering you both hosting and registration it's best you to comeover from complications.

    There will be many problem if you do different once you are fit in doing well afterwards you can carry with this process.

    Best is Goddady

    You might save some money for registering a domain name with a hosting company, but I would take into consideration the reliability of a hosting company and the price. It is more important to look at the cost of the hosting because you pay that every month, versus the domain name every year.

    My choice for web hosting is HostGator. Cost for the domain with them is $15, but their web hosting service is one of the best out there. and the monthly cost starts from $4.95. You can save close to $10 if you use coupon code: HOST994HGH

    If you want to save on the domain name register it with GoDaddy and use a coupon there as well. For example coupon code CJC749NOT will save you a few bucks: you will be able to register a domain name for $7.49. They also offer hosting but I would not recommend that. Hosting at GoDaddy is not that great.

    Good luck!

    I used IX Hosting for a while and had nothing but great experiences with them.  I hear Hover.com is a great place to buy domains.

    You can go for registering and hosting at same registrar itself because it was safe and easy to analyze about both. You can also choose the name that you want to take if it is available. There are many registrars are to register and hosting a website the thing is to know whether they are popular or not. I suggest you a registrar http://www.thewebpole.com/   where they provide registration and as well as the hosting service as best as comparing to other registrars I had registered and hosted my website here only they provided me a good service and cost of hosting and registering is seems to be cheap to comparing to other registrars.
