    *rep to helpers*

    Hi

    I am thinking of starting a website where I can advertise and sell some things, so i want to know the best value for money website host and domain name provider please I don't want to spend a lot because its just a bit of a hobby also I doubt I need lots of memory as its just going to be a view pics, with some video links and then google and paypal check-out.

    Domain host = 123-reg.co.uk
    Site host = 34sp.com
    Software... if you can get it free... Dreamweaver

    hello there

    it all depends what your selling etc, and what you want your site to do.

    I'm willing to give you some free space with your own uploading login. I normally use Dreamweaver, but im sure others are more able to advise.

    I prefer godaddy to 123reg their generally cheaper and have a better interface, plus there's always voucher codes floating about for them.

    As for a host i'd say bluehost or hostmonster.

    Depends on what you want.

    How much is a .co.uk domain with godaddy? Certainly dearer than 123-reg for sure. (The 99p .eu domains just finished at 123-reg, though Id always recommend getting a co.uk wherever possible.)

    And its always better to have the site hosted in the UK (if thats the intended market). Search engines can and do load a bias against UK search engines if the site is stateside.

    I can recommend 123-reg too.

    Depending on what you're selling, check out bigcartel.com/

    Domain host = 123-reg.co.uk
    Web host = asp-host.co.uk or php-host.co.uk depending on language you intend to use (you'll want a mySQL database)
    Software = Dreamweaver (as mentioned) if you're a noob or Notepad++ if you wanna go code-o!

    Thanks everyone but the most important thing is the website builder, I was hoping for a free simple one I don't want to do any of the fancy things that dreamweaver does

    Also I need some real cheap website host please
