    My sisters boss want to know the best company/site to get a domain name form. She also might want someone in the future for hosting so if they could do both that would be cool to. I think it is just for a personal site so bandwidth doesn't have to be ridiculous or anything. I don't have any experience buying a name or having something hosted so I am hoping that OT can give me an answer. If you guys have had a good experience with a company post a link. :x:

    I use Dotster to register my domains.

    http://dotster.com

    Can't say anything bad. Painless, easy to use, no problems.

    I used register.com to register and hostway.com to host.

    No problems here.

    Another vote for Godaddy. I've been using them for years and I've been nothing but happy with the service. I was with DirectNIC for a while, but the high prices for service was really getting to me.

    Just to add, what I really like about GoDaddy is the free DNS management tool they offer. I just don't want to deal with my own DNS server (though, it's really not that hard..lol) so I totally dig being able to use their service.

    Godaddy.com. Centralized maintenance for all the domains I own. Easy as pie!
