domains and hosting

Posted by bobslinx (My Page) on

I am in the process of creating a website for a friend. I have looked at a couple of sites regarding domain names and web hosting but I am not sure what to look out for. It will be a small site no more then 10 meg and they will need a domain name. Should I go to one company to give me both, or is there a better way. Who are reputable hosts, and who are the cowboys. Is there any pitfalls I should be aware of.

This will be a UK based site and would prefur a UK host

Thanks if anyone can help

RE: domains and hosting

I've been using and recommending for about 4 years now. They have packages from $9.95 and up.

They have good hosting packages and cheap domain name registration. I'm not sure if they register UK domains, but I know they host them.

Check 'em out and see what you think. If you decide to host with them... feel free to use me as a referral. (21181)

Only advice for you... watch the little hosting companies. They tend to fold a lot and leave you with downtime. I learned that the hardway. :)


RE: domains and hosting

I am in Canada and used, and for $99 I registered my .ca domain and got a year's worth of hosting, which also gives me 25 megs of space and 5 email addys and other stuff I dont actually need.

I did a lot of reading online and bookmarked several possible companies to deal with before settling on I like that it's an all-in-one deal, domain reg. and hosting.

I know my situation probably doesnt help you but I suggest you read a LOT and compare who gives you what and how much it costs.
