    Setting up a website...

    Hey guys, I'm thinking of setting up a website to try my hand at some business (It'll be nothing to do with neo though). What I'm asking is, say I registered a site at www.bluehost.com, I'm paying around $180 for 3 years of my domain. Is that all the costs I have to pay for setting up a site? Or is the $180 purely registering a domain and I'll still need to pay for a server? Thanks for clearing things up!

    You can get the domain for like $5 a year.

    Hosting you can get for around $5-10 a month depending on your requirements.

    Then if you want e-mail addresses for your domain that's extra.

    @goodieboy, UGH blue host

    It includes the hosting but you have to deal with their freaking cPanel. Good luck -_-

    What's up with cPanel?

    Hostgator is also similar, I've used them in the past.

    I pay $10 for domains (generally .com, though I own a more expensive .nu)
    and $36.21 /yr for hosting

    That's $46.21/yr, 138.63 for 3 years. This does not include any coupon codes for hosting or domains though.

    You can use

    http://godaddy.com
    http://namecheap.com
    for domains


    I use https://www.levelhosting.ca for hosting, i found some 50% off forever coupon code that's why.

    Thanks for your input @esperato @nayfeee @Shawn.

    What do you think is the most user friendly host? Oh and if I decide to use https://www.levelhosting.ca for hosting, the server will be in canada right? My target audience is actually all the way in asia, does it affect anything? Sorry I'm a little noob

    From what I think, it won't affect anything.
    You don't have to use levelhosting, you could do a bit of research and compare prices, plans, and see if they have coupons. (If you use levelhosting I suggest you google levelhosting 50% off forever coupon or something)

    What do you mean by user friendly? Most hosts I've used use cPanel, if thats what you mean?

    Ok I guess I'll go figure out how to use cPanel. Thanks for the tips, levelhosting is currently having 50% off storewide for web hostings!

    cPanel is actually pretty easy to use. You shouldn't need it for much. Use FTP for your file editing and use the cPanel mysql for databases.

    You won't need it for much of anything else.
    I use fatcow.com they use a custom panel.
