I've decided that the time has come for me to get my own domain name and I've checked that the name I want is available, but I need some advice on how to go about getting it. There are so many different companies out there that it's just completely overwhelming me with info. :-o

Can anyone recommend a company that I can buy the name from and who also does web hosting and e-mail hosting (or at the very least re-direction)? Obviously cheaper is preferred, but I'd rather pay a bit more for a reliable service to be honest.

You can tell I've never had to do this before can't you? :-)

I've had pretty good results with both godady.com and dreamhost.com

I went for www.easily.co.uk for my domain name, and they will happily redirect stuff, or host your domain.

Ooohhhh, that's very, very tempting.

I might just take you up on that. :-)

It won't be straight away though, there's loads of other stuff to do before I can even consider make a site, but when I'm ready I'll get back to you.

Thanks. :-)

*hugs*

Google will offer you a free e-mail hosting account that comes with google apps and their calendar. I particularly like the $free price tag. I'm not sure if you can purchase a domain directly through them. I do know that transferring the domain hosting to them from UKReg was rather fiddly and a bit more teccy than I would like.

I cannot recommend Fasthosts as a hosting provider. They were crap.

I used simply.com, they Just work, and will offer hosting, or you can mess with DNS to your heart's content via them
