Website Registration & Hosting
Apr 10, 2012

Hello,

I am planning to launch a website down the line. I wanted to know what solutions are available for hosting and registration.

What I am looking for is a few suggestions of how do i go about with this business.

  • I looked up the domain name at 123-reg and it seems to be cheaper than GoDaddy , so I am only guessing that there are a few things hidden or missing any experiences ? Does where you purchase this even matter , there are about 1 billion options.

  • In terms of hosting, how does this entire business work? i.e. Does my hosting need to be done at the site i purchased my registration? If not , will there be any transfer fees if i change my hosting? Can I just register the name now and worry about hosting later? I

  • At the moment, I plan to have it up and running using either some sort of a tool or a template and perhaps put the bells and whistles down the line. I understand 123 has its own builder tool available, There are a few solutions suggested like wordpress. So I guess I am looking for a solution where I can easily drag-drop widgets I need and when the time comes customize the tulips out of it.

  • Extras: What extras do you need to get , I was suggested to get hold of whois privacy to keep the spambots away, anything else you guys would recommend I keep my eyes open before i sign the dotted line.

Thanks,
H
