I want to start a blog, but want my own domain name, where can I go?
If you want to buy a domain name you can go to namecheap.com.
But be careful about choosing the right name for your domain. Do some keywords research before choosing.
My advice to you is also to choose unique name not over 20 characters long.
I think the easiest way is to signup for a blog with your own domain in wordpress.com. In their signup page there is a Blog Address option. You can enter your domain name on the left side and the suffix on the right. If you want your own domain (not the free ".wordpress.com"), you can choose either .com, .net or .org as your suffix. I think they charge $17 per year.
If you want a domain name go to easily.co.uk they are very good and in comparison to others I find them cheaper and better service.
Wordpress self hosted is our top choice. If you need help setting it up, we can do it for you free at freeblogfactory.com : )
I would suggest using wordpress and purchasing your own domain name there unless you know how to code.
I bought a domain name at GoDaddy and they will host my website using Word Press.
Stay away from Godaddy! Bluehost or hostgator are the best in the market!
