Buying and Hosting Your Domain Name
10 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Internet Marketing
No 2. Hostgator
Before you even start to build your own website there are two things you will need. The first is a domain name and the second is a website hosting company.
A good place to purchase your domain name from is Namecheap. You can get all your .com’s, .nets and .co.uk’s there. Always remember to have you keyword in your domain title i.e. LibertiesRestaurant.com, RoyalCliffBeachResort.com or BlendLocalSearchMarketing.com.
Namecheap also offer a free Whoisguard. Did you know that when you register your domain, your name, address and phone number are readily made available to anyone that requests it via a whois search? Whoisguard privacy protection allows you to keep your information private, as it should be. Don’t let spammers and telemarketers compromise your privacy. Get Whoisguard protected free with Namecheap.
Before you purchase your domain, Google ‘Namecheap discount code’. Use this code if applicable to save a few dollars on your purchase. Once you have purchased your new domain name, you need to host it somewhere. Never host your domain where you bought it. (Never keep all your eggs in one basket!)
HostGator is one of the world’s top 10 largest web-hosting companies with more than 2,500,000 hosted domains around the globe.

Did you know servers use a huge amount of energy?
