Website hosting and domain registration

Hey All

I am new to world of affiliate marketing so I am learning a lot from this site and its contributors. The problem is that there is so much information that its easy to loose a few hours scanning and researching and at the end being more confused than I began. I just wanted to canvas opinion/ help about hosting and domain names.

I have been looking at this for a few days now and for every good comment there seems to be an equal bad comment. I see godaddy, hostgator, blue host, green geeks, ipage, etc. how do you choose? there doesn't seem to be much between them (even price). What should I be looking for?

I am considering the premium services/ affiloblueprint too, how does the web hosting there differ/ stack up compared to these other services.

Please help a confused newbie.

cheers

Jon

There are positives and negatives with any choice you will make. There are things good and bad about every company that registers domains and well as those that provide website hosting.

Saying that, your choice is to just pick one. Later, if you decide you do not like that company you can change to another hosting company. It may take a little effort to change but it can easily be done.

There is an old adage "It is easier to correct the boat that is moving off course than the boat that is still tied at the dock". What I am trying to say is "DO SOMETHING. MAKE A MISTAKE. THEN WE CAN CORRECT IT IF NEEDED."

I personally use GoDaddy as a domain registrar. I have 15 websites with AffiloHost. I have another 15 with HostGator.

If it is a major company you can't go too far wrong.

Hey there Jon,

I understand that you might get confused when you get to scan or research about materials to help you regarding web hosting and domain registration. Fortunately, AffiloBlueprint offers you an easy step-by-step lesson regarding Web Hosting and Domain Registration.. The lesson notes are very easy to understand, and there are also video demonstrations you can watch to help you understand much better. I'm sure that would be of great help to you.

We recommend Affilorama premium hosting and hostgator. :)

These have hosting packages that are reasonably priced. They are pretty inexpensive and offer really good customer support. These also have very good “uptime” which means your sites are always accessible since the servers rarely have problems.

Here's a hosting package that includes an autoresponder emailing service and a webinar service (these would cost a LOT more in addition to regular hosting) and it's less than $10 a month.

I can personally vouch for this service.

Hi,

You can try nameboy.com where you can enter a couple of words related to your topic and it will suggest domain names based on those words, and you can also try to purchase your domain name through namecheap.com.They have a pretty straightforward purchasing process, and the prices are about as cheap as you're going to find anywhere else.
You can choose Hostgator.com for your hosting.Hostgator have a hosting package for a reasonable price. It is pretty expensive but they offer really good customer support via live chat that you can go if there is anything wrong with your site.

Hi,
thing to see before you choose a domain name
--Your Domain Name Should Be Your Website Name
-- Possible Spelling
-- Shorter is Better
-- Easy to Type
-- Easily Understood
-- Unique
--Commercial Appeal and
--domain name extension
Web hosting is able to offer businesses and individuals many advantages if they choose the right web hosting package for their requirements during the order process, although it is also important for you to choose the right web hosting provider if you wish to be able to make the most of the web hosting service that you have purchased. A web hosting package can be used to help you establish your web presence, but as a business a web hosting package is likely to be so much more to you as it will mean that you can establish yourself online; once you have your business established online you can then work to take it further by creating an online shop that you can sell your goods or services through, and because all countries have access to the internet in one way or another you may even be able to gage a worldwide audiences for your goods or services. I suggest you to visit the website named http://www.9cubehosting.com/ where they are providing excellent service art registering and hosting….

I'm a big fan of http://www.BlueHost.com (and I'm their affiliate, but not on this link). I did a lot of research to find the best possible hosting service to move all my website development clients and all my own sites and blogs to - after the service I had been using was bought out by an inferior company.

That was over 3 years ago and my experience with BlueHost has been 100% positive, zero downside.

You can look at the best web hosting review sites (the ones that are independent of any hosting service and not affiliates). You'll see that BlueHost is always in the top few and often #1.

I've used maybe a dozen hosting services in my 16 years as a webmaster, and never found anything nearly as good as BlueHost - especially their phone support.

Hope this helps...

Hello,

After setting up the website now it can't pull it up. I tried to pull it up via, AffiloTheme hosting/download then admin URL and it takes me to this link, http://www.yeastinfectionagain.com/wp-admin/ . I try to log in and it won't take any pw's. What step did I miss or what is happening, please advise to be able to continue.

Thank you,

Nancy
