Domain Name Registration & Website Hosting

www.bluehost.com - I have been

them. Their phone has always been answered when I have called
and their employees are great at walking you through procedures.
Their price is excellent and includes nearly everything that you
could ever want for your website with a one package price.

that offer domain name registration will include a "parking"
page (aka, their standard marketing page until you are ready to
sign on for their real hosting package). FatCow offers a MiniMoo
plan that includes your domain name registration and will allow
you to upload a real (albeit simple), custom designed page. I
love this fact about them.
Mann Graphic Design & Kimberly Mann are not affiliated with nor receive benefits or monies from the following vendors. I realize that there are many services provider choices available and I have not tested them all (although I have worked with many). I simply have my favorites that I highly recommend to my family, friends, and clients based on both pricing and the level of customer service I have experienced in the past. If you

tell me about your experience. I only want to refer the best
