Web Hosting & Domains
To make an income online, you simply MUST have a website. It is non negotiable. Sure, some people claim you can use PPC traffic to affiliate link to someone else’s sales page, well for every 1 person you can show me who makes money like that, i can show you 99 who don’t. Personally, I don’t like those odds.
Here’s some of the best on the internet.
GoDaddy is probably one of the most familiar names on the internet. Their Super Bowl commercials are legendary. They are the best source to get multiple domain names. (If you only want a single domain for now, see BlueHost below) Most internet marketers have multiple domain names and it’s suggested that if you get Whatever.com, you should also get the .net, .biz and .org. Pricing is better in bulk.
While most people get their URL’s at GoDaddy, many will choose to host their website at another provider. GoDaddy’s hosting can be complicated at times and their interface can get a little confusing. While the URL management is pretty straightforward for things such as email and redirects, the hosting is expensive and complicated.
My advice is get your URL’s there and host at one of the recommendations below.
