I'm looking to set up my own site with a custom domain. I know you can buy the rights to the name from godaddy etc., but what services do you guys use to actually host your site? I know tumblr and 500px offer support for custom domains, but what are some better options?
Depends on what you're using really. For my site, I use wordpress, so I can buy a domain through wordpress or thought a host. I chose to use a host site, because you can install wordpress builders into certain hosts (ie bluehost, what I use). So i bought a domain/server space from bluehost (85 bucks for a year) then I installed wordpress into that domain and build my site from there.
yeah, godaddy might be a tad more expensive but their customer support is top notch.
Hostgator has cheap hosting
