Cheap Domains For Blogs And Other Sites
Having your own domain for your own web site is very important, because it adds to your proffesionalism. However finding a good domain registar that meets all your needs is very hard. I have tried to register with GoDaddy, but I did not want to post my credit card number online. What I wanted to do, is use my PayPal account to pay for it. But to my dismay, upon check out PayPal showed me a window asking me to “Add Your Credit Card”. I emailed the support staff asking about this, because I knew that I had enough funds in the account from freelancing, so that should not be the problem. Within the hour I got a reply explaining that GoDaddy required all PayPal account to be validated (meaning I had to enter my credit card information) to make sure my mailing address was correct. That’s when I gave up with GoDaddy.
A few days later I was updating my website on FreeHostia, and I noticed they offered cheap domain registration for $9.95/year. This was even cheaper than GoDaddy’s deal! I decided to give it a try, and in a few minutes I had a domain without having to use my credit card. What’s more, is that FreeHostia automatically set it up with a free hosting account.
FreeHostia is currently my favourite free web host, so I’m quiet happy that my blog is also hosted with them. They offer great service that many other free hosts don’t provide, and they have very reasonable upgrade plans.
