First of all, if you are thinking of building a successful website then you are going to need a pretty good domain name, but then you knew that right? You need to follow all of the advice that is around on choosing a name that will be remembered and is easy to find. You need to avoid silly spelling mistakes that can be seen to say something entirely different and you need a domain name that sells what it is that your website does perfectly. All in all, you need to spend some time coming up with a perfect name and when you have it you cant afford to lose it. So if you are going to make a website that will one day rule the internet then you need to use a host that allows you to use your own domain name. Not as part of a bigger picture, but as it is supposed to be mydoaminname.asitissupposedtobe that is what you want. If a webhosting site cannot offer you the ability to buy a domain name and use it on their service then you need to be looking for somewhere else to keep your site. Unfortunately this rules out a lot of the free options, but there are still some available. That said if you are planning on having a site that can grow and flower into something beautiful then you are going to need more than just a great domain name. This means that free hosting options are probably not the best step forward. Audiences and search engines like a lot of content and unless you are paying for a service you will find it hard to have enough disk space to provide these things. Video and fancy templates are a sure fire way to impress your visitors but unfortunately these thinks take up a lot of room and that means paying out. One of the more common ways of starting a website is to start small and build up. Get your domain name sorted and then start to build your website around it. This means that you can start at a cheap webhotel and move on to something a bit more spectacular as things start to take off. This is a good idea because it means that you can start off with just a small amount of expenditure and only begin to spend more when your website starts to earn more. Shrewd, I like it. However, this approach brings us back to the subject of domain names (did you know the term in Swedish is http://surftown.se/doman) because not all hosts will allow you to transfer a name away from them, especially if that particular site was also the registrar. So when you start your website and decide upon a word beating domain name then you need to make sure that you can take that name wherever you like. It might be worth looking for a host that allows you to upgrade as and when you like and then you can stay exactly where you are.
