    Lifehacker, tips and downloads for getting things done

    I have purchased the domain from Gandhi : Domain name registrar and VPS cloud hosting - Gandi.net

    You can also try Hostgator. Please wait for further comments.

    - You can try godaddy.com. They are good. You can also try namecheap or name.com
    - Buy domain and webhosting only from reputed companies.
    - Ohh do you plan to setup your own server. I would say dont go for that. You can buy cheap hosting at bluehost or hostgator for a year and host on them. Setting up and maintaining own server is a big pain. It wount just work out.
    - If you buy hosting on bluehost or hostgator you just define the nameservers for your domain at your domain registrar.

    You may get your domain and hosting service separately. may i confirm if you are looking for .id domain name? which location of data centre you are looking for?

    I am a namecheap customer and I am a satisfied customer. You can get a domain from namecheap. If you think to host your website, you can also host via namecheap

    After reading your question, I must say you are a beginner and you developed your website recently and now wanted to online that before taking domain you have to take hosting first and for that, you have to understand that what kind of hosting does suit your website and your budget as my point of view you must go for that shared hosting as it is cheap and for the beginners it is best as compared to any other .and to know more about hosting and free domain registration and cheap hosting offers just visit onlinetroublleshooters
