I need to set up a personal website. e.g. slicknshady.com

It will be very very simple. Perhaps one page only contain a form to contact Slick n Shady, or perhaps immediately re-direct to my linked in profile.

My other main use is that I will need an email address linked to it. e.g:

[email protected]

So what do you guys think is the cheapest price I can get for this (1 year)?
Any recommendations of the best provider?
+rep to the best response.

Thanks in advance,

SnS

Registering the domain if it is free, will cost arouns £7, I use godaddy.. can get emails on it, people use whatever.. it does not make a difference.

You can then find hosting for a few £ a year with google, if it will just be one page you can go for the cheapest.

Worth noting is the (large) difference in price between .com and .co.uk domains - see http://www.123-reg.co.uk/

I also refer you to the sticky in this forum - http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1060570

If you don't envisage getting that much traffic to your site and aren't plannning to use it for all that much, your best bet would be NearlyFreeSpeech.NET - it's a pay as you go webhost... which means that if you only want to have a couple of links and you host any images elsewhere (try Dropbox) then the amount of bandwidth your site uses up will probably come to less than £1 per year, if that.

If thats all you need it for, then get a .com domain from Dynadot.com and set up URL redirection to your Linked In profile or get some basic web hosting for $11.99 a year and you can get email accounts too and put your own website up.

If it's really that small, ask around your friends if any have a website. I'd certainly host a small personal website for a friend for free, including an email inbox.

Then all you need is your .com... reliably cheapest I've found is namecheap.com - $10 for a year with free whois protection if it's a .com (means someone can't look up your personal details by doing a "whois" query on your web address) which translates to £6 - £7, depending on exchange rate.

Personally I'd always pay the extra couple of pounds for a .com over a .co.uk, .net, .org etc... it's just what people are "used to" with decent sites.

This is really good info I defo don't want my personal details on WhoIs.
I will look this up. +rep

I prob would rather pay to have my own independence rather than ask a friend though.

Thanks

GoDaddy always have deals on. You can find infinite amounts of discount codes on the web too, I signed up to their mailing list and always get emails telling me about how theres x% off.
