Can I buy domain and hosting from single provider?


I'd like to buy a new domain through "GO DADDY" and create my own affiliate website through "WordPress".
I've noticed that there is an option to buy the domain through "WordPress".

Should I buy both domain and hosting in "WordPress" while creating my website or should I buy the Domain and Hosting In "Go Daddy" and create the mapping of the domain in "WordPress"?

thanks for the help

Hi Yaron,

You may choose to buy your domain name anywhere since there is no huge difference between these services. If you plan to host your site in Wordpress, I think it is better to get the domain in Wordpress as well. If not, then just get the domain somewhere else (like in Go Daddy).

Not sure which Affilorama tool you need? Take the quiz!

There is one big advantage in registering your domain separately from your hosting service. If you ever have a serious dispute with your host (and it does happen), you still retain control of/access to the nameserver, hence can rapidly move the site to a new host.
