Domain Names and Hosting

After you figure out what Domain Name is best for you, it is time to buy your Domain Name AND Hosting. I am presenting what seems to be the most popular two domain name and hosting companies in the United States - GoDaddy and HostGator. (choose GoDaddy OR HostGator, not both).

Both GoDaddy and HostGator have excellent hosting options at good prices. Both provide excellent customer service 24/7. I have used GoDaddy for years and been quite happy. Recently, I tried HostGator and have found the account setup and website installation to be quicker and easier. Either will do.

But if you have a gripe against one, just go with the other. GoDaddy appears to be slightly cheaper. But some oppose GoDaddy's use of boobs to sell domain names on Superbowl Sunday... or was it Bob Parsons killing the elephant for sport while simultaneously feeding an African tribe?

Anyway, in today's lesson, there are 2 video lessons to complete if you choose GoDaddy or 1 video lesson if you choose HostGator. After your first few lessons, whether you chose GoDaddy or HostGator will really be transparent and insignificant.
