I'm needing to create a web site obviously...
Anyway, it would be perfect if it was free and had a domian {.com}. But they are v.rare or just don't exist :|
Anyway, dispite there probably isn't one i would pay for one. I live in the Uk so it would be good if it was uk web adress not $. The purpose of the website is like a Clan that games have ie {IHR}... But slightly different. But, i also want it by check and not by {credit} card. Which i know it is annoying casue a lot {from whjat i have seen} use cards casue it is a simple way to pay. A lot of people understand that situation. Anyway it doesn't need to have a massive bandwidth etc jsut a standerd amount for what i need {there will be a forum linked though}. So basically im asking you what hosting design thing.. lol i should go with. For the website im making and the requirements.
Thanks for the help F4 :thumbsup:

You can go to FreeDns and piggy back your subdomain onto a legitimate domain for free. So your web address would be something like "yourDomain.otherDomain.com"

You can host your site on your own system if you have a broadband connection. If you don't want to do that, there are a number of posts that answer this very question. :thumbsup: Might want to search the forums a bit and see what they have to say. ;)

Also, Microsoft is offering a free domain name and free web hosting for their OfficeLive beta rollout. Go to http://officelive.microsoft.com. They require a credit card number, even for the free service, to keep people from registering more than one account.
