What is the best site to go to for domain names?
I read that GoDaddy isn't the best option (can't remember why). What about hostdaddy or bluehost? Doiteasy.com? What others are there and what makes one any better than another?
I use GoDaddy and it has been terrific. However, I don't know much about these other options so I don't really have anything to compare it to. I just know that GoDaddy has done an excellent job and their customer support has been phenomenal.
I was going to pick godaddy for domain name, and another hosting company for a hosting plan, but it seemed like a hassle.. so I picked the best hosting company I found after a lot of research and reading reviews.. I went for arvixe.com, they will give you a free domain name with your hosting plan..
please stay away from bluehost, I haven't found a single good thing about them..
P.S when you read companies' reviews, I assure you - you'll find many bad reviews for each one of them, and that will drive you even more crazy; because you won't know which to choose.. my advise is, go with the one you see with equal good and bad reviews..
I've looked all over the internet - hopeful to find a company with no bad reviews or at least not many, but that was just mission impossible!
I was also comparing arvixe.com with another hosting company, as they were the best I found with equal reviews.. hosting24.com.. just to give you more options..
To answer your question: if you are buying a domain name and a hosting plan separately, I would suggest to go with the cheaper one for domain name, but if you are looking with a plan as well, then I suggest to look at the two above..
what makes a company better than the other? for the hosting plan, I would say, how fast they solve your problems or your down times..
for the domain name, I honestly see no difference other than the price.
hope that helped
I think, wordpress is better. You may also use godaddy for your domain name.
I use GoDaddy for all my domain names then I use another hosting provider.
I recently started a new domain name and I chose GoDaddy, partly because we used it at work and we always had great service and it isn't expensive. Also they offer a lot free technology and other services that make our online life a little easier.
However I am using Google Sites as the actual site, mainly because it is free and offers all, well at least most of, the same functionality as other site building technologies. I easily configured my site on Google to use my domain at GoDaddy. It only took at 5 minutes to integrate the two together.
GoDaddy is good mostly because its the cheapest, and they allow you to buy similar domains at a discount so you don't get people creating copycat sites. The only problem I've had with them is that since using them, they have sent me a ton of ads.
godaddy.com for domain names
hostgator.com for hosting
I use this combo for all of my websites.
I think there are a number of issues to think about when chosing a domain registrar - and which is cheapest is not necessarily the best as the difference in price across all registrars seems to be minimal.
I'd say if you want to register a domain at cheap and reliable means I suggest you to go with http://www.thewebpole.com/ here the services all that they provide are best and reliable.
I use GoDaddy. I've been using them for 10 years now. In the beginning I registered with NetworkSolutions.com until I found out what a rip off their prices are.

I am considering creating a web site and would appreciate comments/suggestions. I am fairly new to this and the only web hosting/creation site that I know is godaddy.com but I am sure there must be more.

I once had a great site that a webmaster maintained for me and that was a good one (didn't make any money on it but hey)So I'm ready to try this again. I have...

I bought a Godaddy domain (so don't tell me that was dumb, because it's already paid for, so it doesn't matter if you agree or not with that choice lol).So, should I use their hosting ($2.99 a month if I pay 36 months out), or should I get someone else? If so, who and why?
