hey, i'm going to make a website for my photography. I want to use a custom domain name (.net, i've already got a name that isn't taken thought of) and i know jack shit about all these matters so do you guys know where the best place to do this would be? I'm willing to pay the yearly fee or whatever. for now all i want this domain to do is redirect to a tumblr but eventually i want it to actually host shit.

thanks!

a lot of hosting companies will register a domain name for you if you use their service, try looking for one of those and kill two birds with one stone

I don't suggest you register your domain through a web hosting company (unless it's a registrant which also provides web hosting). I've heard and read countless of stories with people stuck with a specific host because they've had hard time moving their domain away from the provider they registered the domain with. Basically if you do that, the provider will register the domain in THEIR name (usually), and unless they state in their terms of usage that you have complete control over your domain, do NOT register it via them.

I've only had this for about a month or so but I have a domain and hosting through Godaddy and I've not had any problems.  Granted, I've not tried switching hosts or anything.  My only issue with them is that they'll try to call you for the first week to sell you more shit, but I just put them in my phonebook so I could ignore the calls from that number.

What a dirty trick!

I wouldn't suggest godaddy as a registrar. I had a hard time transferring my domain from them. It took 3 identical attempts before it finally transferred and they sent way too many confirmations trying to get me not to transfer my domain.

So uh, is there like a website that tells you which registrars/hosting sites are good/bad?  Are there any that you guys use now that don't give you any problems?

I use Freehostia. It's only like $10 to register for a year, and free hosting. I have no idea whether or not it's suitable for an actual commercial site or whatnot, but it seems to work for my needs, especially financially.

you really have no idea if a $10/year plan is suitable for a commercial site
