Best Web Hosting Option?

Hey guys, sorry for the seemingly off topic post, but this seemed like the closest forum to my topic.

Basically, I am about to both register a domain name and sign up for web hosting. I have some questions.

First of all, should I get my domain name and my hosting through the same provider?

Second of all, who is the best provider? I am going to be running a sales business from this website.

So far, I'm thinking I should go with either 1and1 or Inmotion. Any advice?

Thanks!

  1. I've used 1and1 for some time but eventually move over to bluehost. I thought their interface was much more user friendly. The other advantage was they host out of Chicago, which suited my needs better as I was running a Chicago-centric site so it worked out from a latency perspetive.

    I've found that having your domain registered with the same host as your site is a little easier as well. You don't have to, but if you're unfamiliar with how to set that up, it just makes more sense.

  2. Verio suits my very small requirement for $11.95 a month and registering the name was free some years back.

  3. I would stay away from 1&1 if I were you. I don't have any direct experience with them but have had an earful from my clients.

  6. godaddy always as i find it is more reliable from my experience
  7. I recommend using a different provider for each. One for domain registration, the other for hosting. That way, you don't give too much control to one provider.

    I also recommend using a web host that will have a server in the country where most of your web site visitors will come from, just to help with visitor web site experience.
  8. Yes, you need to get a domain name from the same provider. This would be convenient for you. And , for the best servcie provider a thorough googling could help your out in this regard. if your business is sales based, then a VPS hsoting would be an ideal option.
