What's the best place to buy a domain name, host a website and emails etc? TIA
I've used Www.uk2.net quite a lot. They are cheap, comprehensive and reliable.If you go via quidco you get up to 40% cash back too, which I did with my last order.
I used Nominet.
I need to know this too!Any other suggestions? Friend has UK2 and it goes down quite a lot. Or used to.
UK2 are excellent for domain names, but their hosting services have been unreliable IME so I only use them as part of a strategy with hosting elsewhere.For the best all-round package I recommend 123-reg or if you want to support a UK company, TsoHost.
can anyone recommend a 'green' web hosting service?My business is based around sustainability, so my suppliers need to be too. And preferable UK-based.
Oh I'm so confused can I buy basic package from 123reg then use that to link to free host or should I do it all through them? I need email and website? So confusing
"can anyone recommend a 'green' web hosting service?"Depends on your needs - I use Memset who are fairly green, but they don't do basic web hosting. Their VPSs are the best in the UK though IMHO.
Scariest, I use 123 and are 99% happy with them (in particular a man named George!). What do you need? Well that depends on what you want to do. They have their own site-builder, it's crap, personally I buy 123 hosting and install Wordpress. Email is included in buyin hosting so don't tack this on as an extra. Do you want a co.uk or a .com? Their .com comes with a free .co.uk but the hosting package can only be used on one, you will need to point the second to the first. Clear as mud right?
