Every website needs domain registration and web hosting.
Some web-hosting companies are significantly better than others and we recommendation the following three:
Our number one pick for most website needs, Bluehost provide excellent hosting—fast, reliable, a control panel that is as user-friendly as they get and with great tech support—and their price is good. For most shared-hosting needs, their basic plan has everything you need. Try them »
Dreamhost offer advanced options that practically no other hosting company do but their control panel is more suited to programmers than to non-programmers.
