    Usually you need TWO things...

    1) A domain name (done through a registrar).

    2) A web hosting service (a place to store the files that become your website).

    Some plans allow you to buy both from one company... in fact that's becoming common now. I would not recommend it though. Keep your domain name and your hosting account separate. This gives you some leverage. Say, if you want to switch your hosting company but want to keep the same domain name.

    Having a real domain name and web hosting account gives you a lot of features that look professional. Such as having numerous email addresses at your own domain. For instance...

    yourname@example.com

    support@example.com

    manager@example.com

    A decent web host will also let you have a number of subdomains, so you can separate content. Such as...

    http://store.example.com

    http://discussions.example.com

    http://support.example.com

    Finally, if you go with a reseller account, you can then subdivide your bandwidth and disk space and sell it out to clients, friends, etc. And then your own hosting might even end up being free.

    Example: You get a basic reseller account for $25 a month, and you sell 3 friends web hosting at $10 a month each. So now not only is your own website free, you've got an extra $5 a month in your pocket.

    Finally, having a real web hosting account (instead of one of the freebies) gives you more control... for instance, the ability to install all sorts of interesting software, like blogs and content management systems. For instance, off the top of my head...

  • When you need a server 24/7 connected to the internet with disk space to hold your web pages, and the server is able to serve requests from people requesting to see your web pages, you will need to look for a web hosting service provider, which is capable to provide those to you for a recurring fee.

    You need a domain such as www.yourname.com and need webhosting to publish webpages.

    If you are serious about creating websites for your business, don't go for free webhosting as they are not reliable and you may end up losing all your work. They usually put ads on your websites and it could be annoying.

    If you intend to create a few websites (usually you will end up more than 1 website), go for multiple web hosting where you could handle your websites in one account.

    Visit Following webhosting , they are quite good.

    They offer hosting of "unlimited domains" and you will get massive webspace of 200000 MB (200 GB ). They only charge $4.95/month and they offer "a free Domain Name" and installing service called "Fantastico". By using Fantastico, you could create own forum, photo gallery, shopping cart (e-commerce),your own auction site and your own blogs within few seconds.
