I would agree with masterbrown and go with 1&1. They are very easy to use and helpful.

Note there are two costs involved here

1) Buying the domain

2) Getting someone to host it.

You can buy a domain very cheaply, a co.uk may cost a couple of pounds, but that just means you own the name, it does not yet exist on a computer anywhere so you could not set up a web site.

You then need to get someone to host it.

Usually best to buy the domain and get the same company to host it (but you dont have to).

The cost of hosting will vary depending how complex and busy the site may be, and what features you want the web site to have.

When I got mine from 1&1 it was £31.14 for 1 year of hosting + 2 years of domain. The control panel used is very easy to use though.

No. Don't do this! Buy and host with seperate companies. If you get problems with your hosting, you can simply amend the nameserver to your new host.

I've seen lots of problems with 1&1 in forums - so I, cant recommend as others have. However, I can do so for 123-reg, who I have used for 10 years now.

Hosting? Depends what you intend on doing and the amount of space needed. Personally I would recommend either 34sp.com or liquidsix.com both of which are UK based and boast excellent customer service and uptime. If you want to test speed, this is a site I do for a local charity and hosted with 34sp.com

if you said what you do need it might be easier to receommend, Do you need a database for example?
If its just a small amount of hosting does your isp not offer any free?

They probably do Colin - but for a business, I personally wouldnt want to take a chance!

Rule number one! Dont do that! Make sure you use a webform - or else risk getting your site harvested and email box full of viagra adds!!

yeah but if its just a simple page or two, no shopping cart or anything it would be ok, but again if its for business cheapest probably isn't best either.

Microsoft offer free web hosting and free web address for small businesses. I think that they charge after the first year but it may be worth looking into as a start - Here's the link.
