which host do you use for your site/blog? where did you buy your domain name?

want to purchase a domain name (ie www.example.com is a domain, www.example.wordpress.com means you dont own your own domain) and I need to buy a host, anyone who does this knows what Im talking about. I am looking for a host that lets you pay monthly, not the lump sum which I keep running into and affordable of course.

  • I use to use godaddy.com . When I go back again that is probably who I will use again.

  • I use yahoo webhosting and pay monthly. I set it up several years ago so I'm not sure if their procedure is the same as it was then, but when I did it, it was very simple. And yes, I have my domain name.

  • I bought my domain name through cheapnames.com or something like that. I use photobiz.com for hosting, but that caters specifically to photographers, so I don't know if that would necessarily fit your needs.

  • I got my domain name through GoDaddy and my hosting is with Laughing Squid. I chose them because they can host WordPress.

  • I use Blogger for mine and I believe there is an option in the program for adding your own domain. It's in the dashboard. If you like Blogger, check their frequently asked questions to more information.

  • GoDaddy. I will ONLY use GoDaddy. I program using GoDaddy servers. I purchase all my domains and hosting GoDaddy.
    I don't think I can say it enough GoDaddy.com

    GoDaddy, can host ANY PROGRAM. WordPress, ZenCart, and all the rest.
