Domain Hosting Reviews
Domain hosting is obviously very important to your website's success. The low cost leader is not usually the best value. Uptime is of the utmost importance, and solid support can be essential, especially for new webmasters. Check out our latest Domain Hosting Reviews for our recommendations and tips on choosing a reliable web hosting service.
Our Top Domain Registrars:
Three rules to consider when registering your domain:
- Never register through a reseller. There are endless horror stories of domain names lost due to resellers going under or turning nasty. Stick with the big Domain Registrars.
- Always register the domain name in your own name and keep your information up to date.
- A Domain Registrar is seldom (if ever) a good hosting company. Avoid "Host with us and get your domain name free" offers. These will generally bite you somewhere over time. Register your domain with one of the reputable registrars and get your domain hosting through a leading hosting company.

Domain Registration Review
Domain Registration is very important to your websites success. There are plenty of places where you can register a domain. It can cost anywhere from $2.99- $25.00 to register a domain that no one has already.
Sometimes people are willing to pay thousands of dollars in order to buy a premium domain. A couple of examples of a premium domains are "dog.com cat.com hosting.com".
Once you have bought a domain, you can keep it as long as you would like, as long as you keep on renewing it year after year. There are ways for people to take your domain after it has been expired so if your domain is very crucial you should consider buying more than a 1 year plan for your domain in order to secure it for the future.
There are new laws being put in place to stop people from taking trademarked/copyrighted names so some things are still protected. Some domain extension examples are .com .net .org .ws .info .tv .edu .co.uk .us .biz , etc, .co, .me, etc.
Listed above are the most reliable places to register a domain. Remember that most of the hosting companies that we have reviewed offer free domains with the purchase of hosting so that you will not need to buy a separate domain through one of these registers. We generaly do not recommend this.
